Use of OS command after message processing in sender MS Access

Hi experts,
My scenario is as follows :
how can i trigger a macro in ms access? we have OS commands ?
as XI will be 64 bit compliant , and the MS access will be 32 bit complaint...will the OS command work in the sender channel?..
The other option i thought abt was...
to send the data to a table xyz, then pass an OS command to trigger the macro using OS command after processing?..
is this a feasible solution?...kindly suggest
sender is ABAP proxy which triggers a macro in MS access..has ne one worked on it?...have nt seen too much info on sdn

  • Operating System Command After File Processing in Sender File Adapter

    Hello guys,
    actually we have different interfaces, and the client to take all the files from only one directory, for example D:/DPI.
    Unitl now we had one adapter for every file with the content conversion, so we didn't have problems with that. Now we have the problem that we sould maintain an order processing files.
    We thougth that an idea could be to execute one file pointing to D:/DPI and at the Operating System Command put like: copy D:/DPI/file.txt D:/DPI/outbound/file.txt, so when file is executed, we move the next file to another directory where is pointing the adapter. Doing this we have an error on the adapter giving us the message: Could not process due to error: java.lang.NullPointerException
    We are using a Windows.
    There is anyway to do in our way, or there is a better solution to resolve this problem?
    Any other idea to do this?
    Many thanks in advance.

    Helo Guys,
    maybe I haven't explained well.
    We have one directory with different files. We have one adapter for every file( we need for the content conversion ) using NFS and all the adapters are pointing to the same directory.
    The problem is that if we have files A.txt, B.txt and C.txt we need to process in an order.
    And the problem we see is that for every file we have one adapter, so for example if we process file A.txt with one adapter, when this part is finished, we want to process file B.txt with another adapter, and the same for the rest of the files.
    So the idea we had is to create another directories, and when A.txt has finished move file B.txt to another directory.
    However this way is not running, if we log on the PI machine and execute cmd, we can do a copy of one file from one directory to another, but when we put this sentence in the adapter in OS command if we see the adapter log we see an error executing the OS command, but we don't know what is the error, there is no more information.
    There is any way to do this or maybe we have to manage in a different way?
    Many thanks in advance.

  • FTP Adapter with Runtime OS Command before Message Processing

    Hi PI Techies,
    I have a confusion in using Sender FTP Adapter with Runtime OS Command before Message Processing.
    Scenario is like this:
    Ftp Adapter has to pick a file from FTP server after it checks that a Blank Marker file exists on PI server AL11 directory say "tmp directory".
    For this I am using Runtime OS Command before Message Processing where a shell script will check the existence of Blank Marker file on PI server AL11 and if found , it exits the script and FTP Adpater will then pick the Actual Data File and Process it.
    Now Confusion:
    I am confused in technical execution of steps by FTP Adapter..
    Whether FTP Adapter polling initiates the Interface or Runtime OS command checking the File existence will initiate the Interface?
    May be its follish to you guys... but please answer ..

    I will take it other way as we need to process the Data File not Marker File ( its just for checking the Data File is completely written on FTP server).
    Other way mean " Will Poll for Data.txt File and if  found then Runtime OS Command will do connect to FTP and check if Marker File exists, if yes then delete the marker file and read the actual Data File for processing.
    Please let me know, if Marker File does not exists on FTP folder, will it still read the Data File or will it exit the Adapter execution?
    Your help is much appreciated.

  • Runtime OS command before Message processing

    Hi all,
    I have a scenario where the input file from a particular FTP server has to be moved to XI server and then process the message from there. For this I am trying to use "Runtime OS command before Message processing" My problem is that how do I define it in the normal adapter configuration i.e. File access parameters for the sender.
    My Query is:
    Now should I use the NFS protocol or the FTP protocol the File access parameters should I specify the directory from which the file needs to be processed after movement to the XI server or should I specify the FTP server details choosing the FTP protocols.
    Also provide me some links on how to configure using OS commands.
    Thanks & Regards,

    U can use NFS ...also for RUN Operating sysyrm command
    You just post ur output file in some folder(Target) , lets say /usr/sap/sapout/test/.and the shell script in this path /usr/sap/bin/ (use ur Rename logic here).
    Inside the File access parameters put target directory and filename scehme and for shell script give processing parameters as File construction mode , File type and OS Command and use a space after the shell script name and the %F.
    And for input can use it directly.
    For the shell script (which u will use to rename the file after processing) you can put anywhere inside /INTERFACE/XI/ but athe time you provide the pat it will be exactly matching as from where you are using the Shell Script and the file at the coressponding places. It shud be in XI. Thats it and u r done.
    Check out these links. First one will help you in acheiving want you want.
    I hope this will solve your problem

    How will i specify the file name in the above syntax as the file name is Dynamic and not constatnt.
    Please Advice.

    Dear All,
    Yes just now i got the answer from this thread[OS command line script - Need help;
    Actually i have another doubt now
    when we give Run Operating system Command After Message processing
    does the OS command get executed after the output file is placed in the Receiver folder/server or before its placed in the receiver folder?

  • How to Run Operating System Command Before/After Message Processing SAP PI

    We are trying to execute multiple commands via "Operating System Command Before/After Message Processing".
    When we use single command say for example cp or mv (copy or move) the commands get executed fine.
    eg: cp %F /var/opt/data/outbound/Test/Dummy.txt 
    /this works fine/
    when we club commands together or try to redirect the outputs of commands, none of the commands get executed.
    cp %F /var/opt/data/outbound/Test/Dummy.txt ; rm %F
    wc -l %F > /var/opt/data/outbound/Test/Dummy.txt
    Is it possible to execute multiple commands or redirect the output  of commands without using a shell script? The PI server we are working on iis hosted on UNIX environment.

    Hi Harleen,
    try like this
    cp %F /var/opt/data/outbound/Test/Dummy.txt ; rm %F
    instead of semicolon try this
    (1) &
    command1 & command2
    Execute Command1 and then execute Command2
    (2) &&
    command1 && command2
    Runs the command2 only when command1 doesn't Complete successfully
    (3) ||
    command1 || command2
    Runs the second command if the first command had an error
    (4) ()
    (command1 || command2) || (command3 & command4)
    Defines the order in which commands are to be executed

  • Create .txt empty file After Message Processing Command Line Linux command

    Hi All,
    An empty .txt file has to be created in FTP location(FTP loc c:\xyz\Customer20082910.txt) only after the .dat file has been created(FTP loc c:\xyz\Customer20082910.dat)
    Note:.dat has the actual data and .txt is an empty file and is created only after .dat is created
    I know that .txt empty file can be created using the After Message Processing Command Line...
    But confused which command to be given such that it will be created in the FTP location(c:\xyz\Customer20082910.txt)
    Can any one please give the Linux command for it...

    Hi Aamir,
    Thanks for the suggestion, I will ask my client to create a shell script at FTP server...
    And one more question,
    This is reverse side , now the .dat file is to be picked only if .txt exists at the FTP server (scenario File > XI>SAP) (earlier was SAP>XI>File)..
    So please can you suggest for this also...
    How can i check for the .txt and pick corresponding .dat file...
    i had posted question long back
    Need to pick .TXT file only if .CTL file is available


    just i want to know what is the purpose of run operating system command before message processing,after message processing under file sender adapter.
    waiting for your great answer.
    seeta ram.

    Hello Seeta,
    let me see if I give it using a simple scenario that I implamented : i nedd to transfer a very large file from one server to the other by XI.
    to save space and network traffic I use an OS command before picking up the file to run a zip command to zip the file.
    after I transfer the file to the target server I run another OS command after the transfer to unzip the file.
    now to your second question:
    the before Os command on the target server is used mostly for checks (make sure there isn't a file by that name or backing up existing data)
    and the after sender OS command is usualy for backing up or erasing existing files (cause it is done only after the first part was finished succesfully).

    in the file adaptor i am specifying the path of a batch file which is located at the same location where these 2 files are created......this batch file should run after message processing
    i am using this .bat file to create a file by combining these 2 files and delete these 2 files after that...

  • OS level command before message processing

    I am getting the files from the SFTP server through the shell script and expecting to be processed by my File sender adapter.
    I have configured my File adapter which will poll the directory into which the shell script gets the file and it is scheduled at say 60 sec duration and i had configured OS level command before message processing.
    But when i monitored my communication channel and also my directory I found out that its not executing the OS level command. I tried dropping the dummy file into the directory. This time when checked in comm channel monitoring, it executes the OS  level command and gets the file from the SFTP server and adapter polls the SFTP file as well. But i don't want to use dummy file each time.
    Is there any way by which we can always make adapter to execute OS level command. I tried various options like Process Empty files etc etc but no luck.
    Thanks in advance.

    How about placing a dummy file of 0 bytes, setting up the 'Handling of Empty Files = Don't create message', Processing mode = 'Test' and then writing a post operating command script as well, to move all the files to archive directory except the dummy file.
    Not a clean solution but just a thought.

  • File-FTP command before message processing

    Hi experts,
    my requirement is as follow :
    i have 5 files on my FTP server. All are named FILE_hhssmm.xml
    In the configuration of my CC out, i have put as specific file name to get picked 1*.xml
    I need a command line in the 'run operating system command before message processing' that renames one of the files as 1FILE_hhssmm.xml so that the files get picked one by one.
    I can not manage to do that, i only managed to write a batch file but i only can run it locally...
    please, any help would be greatly appreciated...

    I have been following this for a while (from other posts as well), you are trying quite hard to get this done
    I have couple of ideas...
    If you think that this is not going to work, then you can try another solution,
    - let the .bat file be scheduled by the scheduler of your OS (this is quite simple) say every 30 mins
    - make the .bat file move your input files from your current folder to a child folder
    - let XI poll the child folder, every 5 secs or so... anyway your scheduler will send the file only after every 30 mins
    - Now you need not rely on the OS command from the Fileadpater of XI
    My suspicion (though it is not documented anywhere in help, as far as I know) is that the OS command executes only if there is proper reading of the file (or its presence as per the configuration in adapter settings) & not per polling of the adapter. I infer this from your previous post. but your requirement is peculiar that though the file is present that itself has to have a different name - to be read by adapter...some kind of clashes ??!!.
    The problem could be something else also, but the above is a possibility as well..
    all the best

  • OS command before file processing in Sender File adapter

    Hi there,
    I'm having troubles running a os command from the sender file (NFS) adapter.  The batch file which I try to run is not getting executed at all.
    When I manually run the same batch file from the command prompt then it works perfectly.
    The OS command looks like this from the adapter config:
    I have also try with this notation
    Please give me some tips how can I solve this problem, is there any way how can I debug the OS command? When I look at the adapter monitonr no errors are showed.
    Thanks for any tips.

    Hi all,
    The problem is solved.
    Issue: File Receiver Channel does not execute the OS Command before message processing.
    Reason: XI always expects an input file (in my case the sender communication channel) on the source folder. If no input files are found then the rest of the adapter configuration is not executed at all.
    In our scenario the OS command is responsible for retrieving the input files from a FTP server the adapter. SO XI will never trigger the OS Command.
    Solution: Place a dummy input file on the source folder , the sender adapter will always read in this file and put it back on the same location.(e.g. using a condition in the receiver determination).

  • OS command before msg processing: In sender FTP

    hi all,
               i have a file-to-file scenario.Now i have to pick the latest file from FTP folder based on timestamp.All the files are named in yyyymmdd format .I came to know that i can run an OS command before message processing to delete the old files and keep the latest file in the folder.
    But i do know know how to write the script for this particular requirement.Can anybody please help me out with the code???

    If you want to delete filenames from Adapter use the following sample code:

  • Operating command before message processing

    Hi experts,
    i have a file to jdbc scenario.
    My problem is that i want to send files that are generated on a ftp seperately.
    To do so, i wrote a .bat script to rename the files the way I want, and then the CC takes the file under the specific name I specified.
    My script works locally, it renames correctly the files.
    But how do i execute my script before the message processing on the files of the FTP ?
    I entered the name of the script in the command line, but doesnt work, looks like nothing is launched.
    Can i launch my script on the FTP ?
    Kind regards,

  • Empty File has to write after Message Processing in File Adapter..!!

    File to File Scenario.
    Once the file is processed and placed in the receiver folder, I need to generate one empty file with the original file name but with different extension (DON). This is used to indicate that the full file is written in the folder.
    Original file has to write like "Output_Final.CSV"
    Empty file has to be placed like "Output_Final.DON"
    Is there any way I can achieve this requirement.?

    I have no clue of removing the same using Graphical mapping ..
    I hope you have set the option of Write Empty File if not try this and still doesnot work
    then need to look for java or ABAP mapping
