I am having 3 more issues with File System Triggers.  I have attached a screen shot of the trigger so you don't have to ask a bunch of questions.


1.  The File Trigger is designed to get new files and files that were modified.  When it is triggered when a file is created or modified, it runs 3 times.

2.  When the Trigger runs, it is supposed to copy the file it triggers.  Instead it tells me the file isn't available, even though it is (it did trigger right).

3.  I tried checking box "Wait for file to be accessible" to see if this fixes the issues above.  This just causes the trigger to do nothing and become usesless.

Can you tell me how to fix the above issues?

Hi Kert,

Would it be possible to set-up a remote support session where we can take a closer look at this issue? If this is possible please send an email over to with a list of your availability. Also please verify the Operating System of the machine in question and it's bit level, as well as the version and bit level of the AutoMate software.
Note: Please reference this forum thread in your email.
