Hello,

I want to move a .dmp file from one folder to another and add the days date of the move onto the filename.

I have done it once but can only get the Month and Year, but not day.

Ideally want it to use the system's date and not have another file that it looks into.

This is for a win2k3 Server Enterprise

Thanks

Tom

OK, a bit of a rough and ready hack of something I've got here:

Code:
set CURRDATE=%DATE:/=-%

move dumpfile.dmp c:\dump_path\dumpfile_%CURRDATE%.dmp

You'll need to add your own paths and filenames but the above is the meat of it.
