RE: Trigger on IFS Folder?



fixed

At easy400.net, you can find IFSTOOL which includes MONIFS (Monitor IFS). I
use that to auto-process inbound EDI files, G/L files, import CSV files into
databases, etc... Works like a champ.

Subject: Trigger on IFS Folder?

This is just a matter of curiosity. I have applied triggers to database
files, but I was wondering if it was possible to apply a trigger to a
non-QSYS folder in the IFS? That is, possible application, which I'm
thinking about, is if a file is dropped into \FolderJA could I have a
trigger program that would automatically be invoked to process files in the
folder?



In the past I just had a NEP that checked every, oh, 15-60 minutes to see if
there was anything there.



Thanks.
