    3. File Attached: If the attached file contains a word or string (use when monitoring a folder)
  5. Spedify the Action that you wish to be applied to that file, you have the option of:
    1. Transaction Type: Select the type of transaction you would like the file to be imported as
    2. Use mapping: Select the mapping that you would like to be applied to that file
  6. Specify what should happen once the rule has been applied:
