Using Print multiple files action

Use Print multiple files to print multiple files based on the size and the date they were created or modified.

Procedure

Follow these steps to print multiple files:

  1. In the Actions palette, double-click or drag the Print multiple files action from the File package.
  2. In the Folder field, specify the name and location of the folder.
  3. From the File type field, select String to specify the file type of your files or Regex
    Use the regular expression in your source file or folder path to support pattern based search. Select the regular expression (Regex) either as a String or Pattern for each regex condition and input the regex value.

    For example, you can use regular expressions either as a String and enter the value as My_ for all file name starting with My_ or as a Pattern such as [a-z]{3}(.txt|xlxs) to retrieve files that matches this pattern.

  4. Select the Include subfolders check box to include all the subfolders in your selected folder.
  5. Select the Size check box to print multiple files based on their size.
    1. Select any of the following options from the list:
      • Atleast: Prints multiple files only if the file size is more than the size you have specified.
      • Atmost: Prints multiple files only if the file size is less than the size you have specified.
      • Exact: Prints multiple files only if the file size is the same as the size you have specified.
    2. Specify a value in the Size field.
  6. Select the Date check box to print multiple files based on the date they were created or modified.
    1. Select any of the following options from the list:
      • Created: Enables you to print multiple files based on the date they were created.
      • Modified: Enables you to print multiple files based on the date they were modified.
    2. Select the Is within last option and specify a value in the field.
      This option enables you to perform the operation on the files if they were created or modified within the number of days you have specified. For example, if you specify 7 in the field, the system performs the operation on the files if they were created or modified in the last 7 days.

      This option enables you to specify a Start date and an End date for the period. For example, if you specify 01/01/19 as the start date and 01/31/19 as the end date of the period, the system performs the operation on the files if they were created or modified between this period.
      Note: The Start date and End date are included in the period.
