Reading files on THOR using foreign keyword and wildcards.

Comments and questions related to the Enterprise Control Language

Hello Team,

The HPCC THOR version I am using is 6.2.16-1.

I am trying to accessing files from a different HPCC machine using the foreign keyword. I am using the following syntax to read those files.

EXPORT ExpDS := DATASET('*::c9_*_b*_li_*.txt_w201611??-??????_bd', Dataset_Layout,THOR);

I am able to use the wildcard characters when I accessing the files from the HOST (HPCC server having these files). But I get the following error
System error: 0: Read: Logical file name '*::c9_*_b*_li_*.txt_w201611??-??????_bd' could not be resolved
when trying to access the files using the foreign keyword and wildcards. Also I am able to access a single filename from a different HPCC server using the foreign keyword but the error raises when using both foreign keyword and wildcards.

Please help me in reading files with wildcards from a different HPCC server.

Thanks and regards,
Akhilesh Badhri.
