Grab filename / file path at file import

Hi,

In certains modes in for example the excel import, we can select to include file path of the imported file.
However, when we choose the normal mode and simple select the file to import, this option is not available it seems ?

Could this be included also in the normale file import mode ?

Thanks !
Nikolaas

Hi Nikolaas,

Can you please clarify this part (see below). A screenshot would be helpful.

However, when we choose the normal mode and simple select the file to import, this option is not available it seems ?

Hi Dmitry,

I cannot see a “add column with file path” here (see further):

In the other modes, there’s an option to add the file path.

Hi Nikolaas,

I wonder why you need an option for the column with file path if you importing from only 1 file which name is hardcoded right in the action so you already know it? You can just add a new column with that file name as a constant. We strive to not introduce options that don’t have much value as they clutter the user interface and harm usability.

Hi Dmitry,

I understand your argument but we save the filename in our datawarehouse…
There is a workaround by using a parameter but a checkbox would be more simple.

Kind regards
