    monitor for database source

    LCampbell _

      I have a Data Pump process that runs 7 projects.  Each of the projects use Excel files as the source input.  I read in the documentation that monitoring is not available for database inputs.  Can I monitor for a dummy text file and use that to initiate the process?  If so, please spell out the steps involved.

          Yes, using a dummy text file would be fine.

           

          Just ensure that the text file arrives after the Excel files are in the right location.
