Reading Filename with Different Timestamp Each Time

I have a process that generates a new file name each time. My Knime flow reads it and write it to a database.

How do I keep reading different filenames and keep inserting into the database.

Any help is apprecaited.

Do the filenames need to be written to the database immediately or once a day for example?


is your file overwritten every time?
In this case you can try this: list files (select folder which contains file) -> table row to variable -> file reader (use the URL variable as file location in the file reader).

Do you mean that the process which generates the files is a process outside of KNIME?

How how do you know the filename to use (e.g the process runs every fifteen minutes and so you’re expecting a filename with a timestamp every 15 minutes, or ?)
