Create a flow and transfer a file

Let's begin by creating a simple flow, and then exchange a file. In this example, Store_66 sends a daily SALES_report to the MainOffice.

    • Select Flows > Add flow. l
    • Create a flow named Simple_flow and give it the identifier flow01 .
    • Define Store_66 as the Source and the MainOffice as the Target. You can leave all other fields set to the default values.

In Transfer CFT

  1. Add a file to exchange. Put a test file, for example SALES_report, in the Store_66 Transfer CFT runtime/pub folder.
  2. From the source Transfer CFT, run the SEND command.
    • Remember to replace <instance_target> with your Transfer CFT for the MainOffice target.
    • The flow Identifier field is equivalent to the Transfer CFT IDF parameter.

CFTUTIL SEND part=<instance_target>, idf=flow01, fname=pub/SALES_report
