Adding date to a file name
« on: 11 May 2022, 09:35 »
I'm currently writing captured prices to a file using triggers.

Is it possible to get MF to 'introduce' the date into the file name automatically?; ideally something like C:\collected_prices\2022-05-11.txt?

Thanks.

Hi
In the Write to file trigger use this as the file name in the File path field:
[now_time_datestr].txt

e.g.
C:\Users\Mark\Desktop\[now_time_datestr].txt

If the file doesn't exist it will be created.
