how to match the filed name from another field

how to match the filed name from another field

how to match the filed name from another field


I want to partially match the upload filename from another field.

Field1: studentID 0023-ac02

Field2: upload filename will be like this: xyzsh-0023-ac02.ghure (upload filename with location)

And how can I ensure that the upload filename included Field1 on the filename.


RE: how to match the filed name from another field

You need to build the filename as a string.
With your example it would be something like:

String ls, ls_value

ls = 'xyzsh-'

ls_value = dw_whatever.getitemstring(row, 'studentID')
If IsNull(ls_value) or ls_value = '' THEN
// cant use it - do something else
ls = ls + ls_value // now assign to the other field using the SetItem method
