Description #

Copy a single file within PlaidCloud Document.

File To Copy #

First, select the appropriate account from the dropdown menu.

Next, press the Browse button to select the file you’d like to copy.

Select Destination #

First, select the appropriate account from the dropdown menu.

Next, press the Browse button to select the destination for the copied file.

By default, Analyze will not allow files to be overwritten. Instead, a numerical suffix will be added to each subsequent copy. To overwrite the existing file, simply check the Allow Overwriting Existing File box.

To rename the file, check the Rename the copied file to box and type in a new name.

Note

Be sure to provide a file extension when changing the name of the file. The file will be created successfully without an extension, but operating systems won’t know its type.

Examples #

Extension Provided #

In this example, the file, HIER_NATURAL_ACCOUNT.txt, is copied from the etl_prototyping/data_files/ directory. It is copied to etl_prototyping/test_copy/ and renamed to HIER_NATURAL_ACCOUNT_2.txt. Since the Allow Overwriting Existing File option is not checked, a numerical suffix will be added to the subsequent copy.Document Copy File

No Extension Provided #

In this example, the file, HIER_CC_SIMPLE.txt, is copied from the etl_prototyping/data_files/ directory. It is copied to etl_prototyping/test_copy/ and renamed to add_extension. Note that since no extension is provided, Document will not show what type the file is, even though it will be a valid text file. This is inadvisable. Also, since the Allow Overwriting Existing File option is not checked, a numerical suffix will be added to the subsequent copy.Document Copy File - no extension provided
