Writes the contents of the specified attribute to a file.
This transformer accepts any feature.
The features with the specified attribute written to a file. The features themselves will be unchanged.
Name of the attribute whose value will be written out to the file.
Name of the output file. The filename can be taken either from the value of an attribute or from a fixed constant name.
Specifies the action to take if the target file already exists.
You can choose to overwrite the file, or append the contents of the Source Attribute to the file. The default action is to overwrite the target file if it already exists.
The character encoding of the target file. The default encoding is System default (fme-default). The most common text encodings are Windows Latin-1 (windows-1252) and Unicode 8-bit (utf-8).
Note that if necessary, full pathnames can be created from existing attribute values by using the StringConcatenator to prepend folder names and/or append extensions prior to using this transformer. The resulting attribute can then be used to specify the target file name.
