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?

Re: Split file without splitting record

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?

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.
