As an update to this, they removed FileDataComplete.db2 in yesterday's build (21796), so we will no longer know future file paths without guessing and bruteforcing.*

No, I just made it in 3 minutes with Excel after converting their DB2 to CSV, and it was easier that way (every row in Excel became a row in Lua). Just a proof of concept.
