If so how can we achieve it. If not what are the other possibilities to read files whose paths are in the database.
Selecting the file paths out of the database is easy enough with a Database Reader. Once you've done that, just iterate through the paths in a transformer, and use FileUtils to do whatever you need to.

It is; you can use Velocity template variables in the File Reader directory field. However that takes effect only when the channel is deployed, not for each polling window. If you need to use a different directory for every poll, you can use a JavaScript Reader instead.

This has been added in 3.0: MIRTH-1441. In 2.x, you would have to use a JavaScript Reader instead.

Always include what Mirth Connect version you're working with. Also include (if applicable) the code you're using and full stacktraces for errors (use CODE tags). Posting your entire channel is helpful as well; make sure to scrub any PHI/passwords first.

- You just bar.
