    Script insert date in the name of my file

    Hello,
    Here is the 1st time I try to create a script to run on Windows my script is designed to take a file the Zipper after the end rename and copy it to another folder

    Infact we all generally works well but is a small concern is that in one part of my name I must insert the current date and then it freezes !!!!!!
    what I try to do me


    @ echo off
    set dat=%date% set dat = date%%
    cd C: \ Documents and Settings \ karimcherif \ Desktop
    rar a-m0 "C: \ Documents and Settings \ karimcherif \ Desktop \ Folder1 \ Folder1" "Folder1"

    cd C: \ Documents and Settings \ karimcherif \ Desktop \ Folder1

    ren Folder1 * CIT8550L00_3680_010_001_%% _B1220I dat-APZ *


    Copy / y "C: \ Documents and Settings \ karimcherif \ Desktop \ Folder1 \ CIT8550L00_3680_010_001_%% _B1220I dat-apz.rar" "C: \ Documents and Settings \ karimcherif \ Desktop \ File2"

    but it does not work, so if you have any other ideas to insert date in the filename ?

    still one last issue I want to know is that it is possible to run my script automatically at a specific hour every day?

    thank you in advance for your help.

    It depends on what format you want to find your date
    eg for YYYY-MM-DD, you do
    set dat =% date: ~ 7.4% -% date: ~ 4.2% -% date: ~ 1.2%

    for details: set /?

    No, but with the "/" It is true that for a file name that is not: for the coup, it seeks to create a folder: D

    ren Folder1 * CIT8550L00_3680_010_001_%% _B1220I dat-APZ *

    I do not know if it is a facet of the Slashdot editor, but there is a space before and after dat%% And since there was no quotation marks around the string, rename must be difficult to navigate.

    To detail closely with the%% dat defined above
    ren File1* CIT8550L00_3680_010_001_%dat%_B1220I-apz* ren Folder1 * CIT8550L00_3680_010_001_%% _B1220I dat-APZ *

    will result in
    ren Filer1* CIT8550L00_3680_010_001_2008-10-29_B1220I-apz* ren Folder1 * CIT8550L00_3680_010_001_2008-10-29_B1220I-APZ *

    Thank you very much it helped me. In fact the problem was the / so it had to be removed from the date.


    thank you once again
