Notes:spacer

  • Text file formats accepted are CSV, XML, HTML, and delimited text. All other text files are treated as plain text.
  • For delimited text files, you may specify any character string or Regular Expression as the data or row delimiter.
  • Where the data source is a folder, you may choose to read each contained file separately, or all of them as a single source.
  • Where the data source is an email account, you may specify
    1. the receive datetime to start reading or continue on where the last run of the job ended, and
    2. the part to capture: sender (from), recipient (to), cc, subject, plain text message, HTML message, and the email raw content.
  • Emails could also be read separately, or all as one source.
  • Mergemill treats each URL list like a folder of files. Each URL on a list could be accessed as a separate document, or the whole list together as a single source.
  • For HTML files, including webpages, you may choose to capture link URLs, link texts, body HTML, or body text.

Notes:spacer

  • Mergemill provides an option to remember the generated files, so that you may opt to generate only changed files. This is important where a job generates many files each time when actually a small portion of them are updated. The options could save you hours if you opt to automatically upload the generated files to a remote FTP server as well.
  • Mergemill features a dynamic output path component builder that lets you specify how the subfolders between the root output folder and the destination files are to be placed and named. Subfolder names may be generated dynamically from data values. In saving the generated files, subfolders that are absent will be automatically created.

Notes:spacer

  • You may use Regular Expressions in setting filter conditions.
  • Since the fetch filters may return multiple text strings from a data value, you are given the following options:
    • accept all strings and thereby growing the datafeed effectively,
    • accept only the first string, or
    • carry out a calculation to obtain the count, average, sum, maximum numeric value, or the minimum numeric value of the text strings.
  • You don't need to do anything if you don't use the filters. The default settings will include each data value as it is.
