Loop data sets and dynamically generated file path

Hi,

I have subprocess with Write CSV operator. It is multiplied ~70 times. Output file has path like "{category_id}/{set_id}/filename.csv" So I want to have it dynamically generated. Can I create it somehow? Like putting to the subprocess two custom variables and then using it in filepath?

EDIT:
I'm using Loop Datasets operator. But after each iteration I have to somehow obtain index of current iteration and generate filepath...



Process added as attachment.

    Seems like you need to use a nested loop values operator.
    The first one you use to loop through the category_id's, then you loop through the set_id's, and then you do your logic. You can then save it using the stored macro values for both category and set id. As in attached simplified example

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><process version="9.3.001">
      <context>
        <input/>
        <output/>

    Hi, I modified my previous post.

    Custom values added to the path of csv file are not abtained from example set. It is just an index. I mean something like:


    index = 0;
    exampleSets = [A, B, C, D];
    foreach (exampleSets as exampleSet) {
       ++index;
        path = index . '/example.csv';
    }

    Thanks! One last ask, can you check my process now (and sorry for polish descriptions above operators)? I hope that now it is ok...

    Hi,

    If you put the input CSV files into one folder, you could use Loop Files and use a single Read CSV instead of multiple, but other than that, the macro thing looks fine.

    Regards,
    Marco
