This question already has an answer here:

Using the command prompt I would like to create a folder named "2013 Vacation Florida" (without quotes), Inside this folder I want to create sequentially dated folders, one for each day. These folders would be numbered "2013-04-01 to 2013-04-30" without quotes (2013 April 1st day etc). I can make the first folder by using the command

            mkdir "2013 Vacation Florida"

I can create all the daily folders by using the command

              for /l %a in (1,1,30) do md "2013-04-%a"

Question- How would I join these two commands into one?

I am using windows 7.

Thanks for your time.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


mkdir automatically creates all parent directories, so you can use this:

for /l %a in (1,1,30) do md "2013 Vacation Florida\2013-04-%a"
