File to send

Names the file that Ricoh ProcessDirector puts in the sending folder to submit to the external program. You can also select a step resource object as the value for the property instead of providing a path and filename. Using a step resource lets you change the specific file without editing all of the workflows that contain the step that uses the file.

Format:

Data type
Symbol formula
Default
${getAbsoluteFileName(print,pdf,read)}

Database name
Job.HotFolder.FileToSend

Usage notes:

  • The default value returns the name of the PDF print file in the spool directory. If the PDF print file does not exist in the spool directory when the external program runs, an error occurs.
  • File to send is a positional job property. For information about using positional job properties, refer to the Information Center.
