getChildFileStem syntax

You can use the getChildFileStem method when the external program creates more than one child job or when you do not know how many child jobs the external program will generate. This method generates a root child job file name that an external program can use to generate as many child job file names as it needs.

To use the Ricoh ProcessDirector getChildFileStem method, use symbol notation to reference it as a Ricoh ProcessDirector symbol formula. Use this syntax:

${getChildFileStem(UsageKeyword, DatatypeKeyword)}

where:

UsageKeyword

A case-sensitive keyword that identifies the usage type of the spool file. The use of UsageKeyword with the getChildFileStem method is the same as described earlier in this topic for spool files and the getFileName and getAbsoluteFileName methods.

DatatypeKeyword

A case-sensitive keyword that identifies the datatype of the spool file. The use of DatatypeKeyword with the getChildFileStem method is the same as described earlier in this topic for spool files and the getFileName and getAbsoluteFileName methods.
