Action list to test input filename

Post by MartinOwen » Mon Mar 26, 2018 11:12 am

Hi,
I'm new to the Enfocus Pitstop product, so applogies if this is a daft question.

I need to create an action list that will check a specific character in the input filename and pass or fail depending on the result.
This is required to define if a page is odd or even so that we can pass it on to another process to run different check.

The filename structure is

ABCD-A01-A1-1234-001.pdf
I need to test the last character of the "001" to see if it is [1,3,5,7,9]. If it is, pass, if not fail.

Is this possible? I did look at the Variable Sets, which looked promising, but I have no experience on how to create one of these.

Any help much appreciated.
Cheers

For this example, you can just use the logic in an outgoing connector.

For Odd pages use
Condition with Variables defined.
[Switch.Calculation:Expression="[Job.NameProper:After="-"]%2"] - Equal to 1

For Even pages use "All Other"

Hi allsystems,

What's the meaning of the "%2" in a such case ?
