Description

Every time a file gets processed, used or created in a transformation or a job, the details of the file, the job entry, the step, etc. is captured and added to an internal result set when the option 'Add file names to result' is set, e.g. in a Text File Output step. You can access this file information using this step.

Note: This step produces one or more rows and can not be placed within a stream. It must be the first step in a stream since it produces rows. If you want to add these data to an existing stream, you need to use a join step.
