Task Scheduler File Naming

185 Views, 1 Replies

I am batch publishing .idw files to .dwf and the default file name that it creates is XXXXX.idw.dxf. Can anyone tell me how to remove the .idw? Is there is setting in Task Scheduler that can be changed? Thanks for all the help.

I couldn't find any reference to the publish dwf filename options for batch files. I see that you can individually rename the files, but I don't think that helps.


You may be able to create a Custom Task in the Task Scheduler with more control over the naming convention. The below blog post discusses using the custom task more in-depth with an ilogic rule.


You may check out the below forum posting to get a start on the ilogic (dwf publishing) code. With a little tweak to the file-name portion of the code you should be able to get what you want.
