Split file without splitting record

We currently produce bank and credit union customer statements. These statements can consist of 2-3 pages all the way up to 16-20 pages per statement. The output files consist of pdfs printed 2-up roll-to-roll on an Impika. We would like to split our files into 60k segments, however we do not want to split in the middle of a customer record. Is this possible in Freeflow Core? I cannot find any setting that would enable this behavior.

Re: Split file without splitting record

The following should give you the result you are looking for:

  1. Split node
    1. split by variable data records
    2. divide into fixed record jobs
    3. records per job = 1
  2. Collect node
    1. Document release conditions
      1. number of pages in collect documents = 60K
      2. collected documents are held for 10 minutes (or some other reasonable time)  --- you need to have a timed release condition for the final set of split records that does not add up to 60K

Re: Split file without splitting record

Thanks David!

 

Will this change my document order at all?

This doesn't seem to be working. The job remains in the Active Jobs section for only a few seconds, then moves to Completed Jobs. When I view the file, nothing has been done. Under the job details there is a message saying "job-completed-with-warnings". How can I view these warnings?

This isbug in 5.1, install new version or use optimize node with "auto correct page geomery" or remowe artbox from PDF.

Re: Split file without splitting record

In my experiments, the records within different documents (within a job group) are re-ordered. For example a record from job 2 can end up between 2 records from job1. Please author a SPAR against this issue. I will also submit an AR.
