You can customize the suffix to any string of your preference if you don't feel like the default file name <FileName>_yyyyMMdd_hhmmss_zzz.<FileExt>.


<FileName> is the name of the AFP input file without any file extension.

For example, suppose the input file is Report.afp, and you perform AFP to TXT transform, you will have <FileName> stood for Report, and <FileExt> stood for txt.


yyyy is the year, MM is month, dd is day, hh is hour, mm is minute, ss is second, zzz is milliseconds.

In this field, you can input your own file name pattern.

To revert the file name pattern to its default value, you can simply clear the filename pattern and make the  field blank.
