Create Parent Directories: When checked, if the target path does not exist then it will be created. Otherwise an error will be thrown.

File Name: Set the name of the file when writing out the message payload

Note: At RUNTIME if PAS attempts to write out a file or create a directory it checks to make sure it does not contain any invalid characters (i.e. |?:* etc...). If it does all invalid characters will be replaced with an underscore "_"


Write Mode: Determines whether a create new file or append to an existing file such as updating a .csv record.
