Is there a way to retrieve the job name without the file extention? I am using $FFwfjob.jobName$ in a save node and appending to the input file in a save node. I would like to not have the file extension included in the middle of the file.
For example if a file is submited 'filename.pdf' the $FFwfjob.jobName$ variable returns 'filename.pdf'
In a save node setting the save name to $FFwfjob.jobName$_$FFwfdoc.pages$ returns a file filename.pdf_7.pdf. I would prefer that it could return filename_7.pdf instead.
Is there a variable that returns simply the root name of the file?
At the moment there's not. The only way to get around this would be to save to a predefined location and then use a script in the external node to rename the file.
How is the file submitted? MAX and JMF submission protocols both provide mechanisms for defining how jobs are named.
For this job configuration it is simply a series of PDFs dropped to a hot folder and written out with updated names containing some rudimentary document parameters, but would apply the same function within a MAX workflow.
