About this task

In the pre-job, the tPrejob component does not have any parameter or property to configure; it just triggers the tFileCopy component before the execution of the main data Job to rename the specified file, so all the required configurations are made in the tFileCopy component.


  1. Double-click the tFileCopy component to show its Basic settings view.
  2. Fill the File Name field with the path and filename of the temporary text file to be renamed, D:/temp/tempdata.csv in this example.
  3. In the Destination directory field, specify or browse to destination directory. In this example, we will save the backup copy in the same directory, D:/temp/.
  4. Select the Rename check box, and specify the new filename in the Destination filename field, backup-tempdata.csv. Leave the other parameters as they are.
