Ciao Rosario,

starting from v4.9.0 there is a specific variable containing the subfolder checked by the watch folder module, especially designed for this specific job without using any custom script.

The variable is called WATCHFOLDERSUBPATH and you can find it in the variables list of the 4.9.0 and above manual, appendix section.

Thanks for support, i'haven't the 4.9.0 version, I solved the problem whit this trigger script:


On Error Resume next


TEMP = "e:\output\" & MID(StartingFolder,10,8)

call Metadata.SetValues("PROVA1", TEMP)
