    Hi Angel,


    To achive this..You can use FileName Port in FlatFile target Definition. But, Please note that FileName port is available only from Informatia 8.X onwards.

    You will create required file name at Transformation level and pass it to FileName Port. It can be done using Transaction Control Transformation and FileName port. Please check the FaltFile Target properties in Target Designer, you will fine this FileName Port. Also there is a good tutorial in Informatica PowerCenter help files for your scenario, check the topics, Transaction Control & FileName port in Help files. There are other posts in this Forum describing the solution.

    Thank you
