Using multiple file writer in TPT export job is changing extension of the file names

We are using a TPT export jobs to export data from Teradata and we are using multiple instances of the file writer.Output files are getting generated properly but the extension is not coming properly.

 

 

Say this is our file wirter syntax:

APPLY TO OPERATOR(FILE_WRITER_Name[10])

 

In 'Filename' attribute of data connector operator if I set the filename as

FileName = 'Folder1\Folder2\Output.txt'

 

But I am getting outputs as:

Output.txt1

Output.txt2

Output.txt3

.....

...

Output.txt10

 

As you can see the file extension itself is getting changed.How can we control this behaviour?

You cannot control this behavior. Each file has to have a unique name.

We might have an enhancement that we have not yet implemented that will add a suffix to the file name and not the extension, but I would have to investigate.

In any event, that enhancement would not be implemented any time soon.
