  • 1.  Create a Connection File to Mulitple Txt files in the same folder

    Posted 06-16-2020 12:44 PM
    I am trying to connect to multiple .txt files that i need to mask?  I followed the below instructions and  I can get 1 to work but when i try to move on to the next file. It will not let me change to the new file it auto picks the one i already masked.

    All the files  are character delimited "|" and the headers/trailers will vary between each file.

    Im assuming I need a different DM.txt file for each file I want to mask but it will not let me create a second one.
