Hi There,

We have setup a workflow to trigger based on existance of a zip file. How can I pass the zip file information (i.e. file name, file location..) to the sub-workflows.

I've been able to successfully pass the file information to a task within the workflow but not to the actual sub-workflows contained within the master workflow.

Does anyone know how to do this.

Since you are using the File Trigger, I would suggest that you use %AMTrigger.Filename%. This will give you the file name and location (full path).

This can be found in the expression builder (any action by pressing the %).

To find this you can open the Dialog box action and press %
From there Select Objects --> Select Triggers --> Select File System
