string To Flat File Conversion

Hi All,

Is is possible to convert a string into a flat file?If yes, then how?


What do you mean by “flat file” ? a file, a flat file schema ?

If you have a string with data, just write it in a file, no ?

There are no set of pre-defined steps that you can follow to randomly convert a string to FF. You will have to first define the message format (Fixed length, variable length, csv, tab separated etc ) and then define a FFDictionary and a schem to parse that message based on position or a delimiter or any other criteria.

Refer to the 8-0-SP1_Flat_File_Schema_Developers_Guide.pdf for more information. Also refer to the services under WmFlatFile\pub.flatFile.


It is a flat file schema.
