property CharacterSetToRemove as %String (DISPLAYLIST = ",IRIS Default,None,Unix,Windows,Detect Unix or Windows", VALUELIST = ",IRIS,None,Unix,Windows,OSDetect") [ InitialExpression = "IRIS" ];
Ens.Util.File::CreateTimestamp() will remove certain characters from the source filename before applying the new name specifier. By default CreateTimestamp removes the following characters:
|?\/:[]<>&,; and ASCII control characters 0,7,9,10 and 13.
Set to IRIS Default to use the CreateTimestamp default.
Set to None to have CreateTimestamp() not strip any characters from the original filename.
Set to Unix to have CreateTimestamp strip / and ASCII control character 0 characters.
Set to Windows to have CreateTimestamp strip <>:/\|?* and ASCII control characters 0 through 31 and 34.
Set to Detect Unix or Windows to detect at startup if Unix or Windows and use the appropriate set as given above.

Note: After CreateTimestamp() has removed any specified characters it will carry out the date time modification based on the filename specificiation and then the final output string, spaces (' ') are replaced by underbars ('_'), slashes ('/') replaced by hyphens ('-') and colons (':') replaced by dots ('.'), except on VMS where both slashes ('/') and colons (':') are instead replaced by hyphens ('-').
This means if characters are to be removed and the original filename contains / or : or spaces and are not considered removable characters they are still modified to _,/,-,. as stated. However if None is chosen as the character set to remove and the filename spec is just %f then no modifications will be applied to space, slashes or colons. This can be used when it is necessary to use exactly the same name as the source.

property Filename as %String (MAXLEN = 1000, MINLEN = 1) [ InitialExpression = "%f_%Q%!+(_a)" , Required ];
Name of file to output the document(s) to. May include timestamp specifiers. The %f specifier if present will be replaced with the name of the document's original source filename (stripped of certain characters in target filenames - see CharacterSetToRemove).

See the method Ens.Util.File::CreateTimestamp() for documentation of timestamping options.
