Question asked by VRFuser on Oct 12, 1999
You're right ... the control input DOES replace whatever text is in the From
File object.  I suspect that the From File object is firing before the data
is sent to the control input.  Check your data flow and make sure the new
file name is getting to the object BEFORE it fires.

If that's not the problem ... well, I don't know what to tell you...
