This was a repost, I had it on stack exchange and was told it was better suited here for the superuser site. Not sure the difference. First time visitor to either site...but here it goes. ~Cheers
I am a novice at best struggling along as my job is evolving and owner will not provide training. Thus, I have a multiple batch files codes that read like this or very similar, ultimately running a nightly report and dropping the pdf file into a shared drive for me.
My batch reads like this and has five reports...I entered two below.
R:\Simply\Simply.exe /u:username /p:password /rpt:"Daily Report" /pgp:Custom /pgs:pdf /el:R:\reports\str001\DailyReports /s R:\Simply\Simply.exe /u:username /p:password /rpt:"Negative Report" /pgp:Custom /pgs:pdf /el:R:\reports\str001\DailyReports /s
Every morning I have to create a new folder with yesterdays date and move all the files that were generated to this folder.
I should note that this batch needs to run on winxp and win7 so dating from what I have read needs to take this into consideration.
I have read and tried several posts on here. I am not sure where to put the code, how to insert it behind my existing code, infront of, on each line. Again, novice looking for some advice. Hell, I even tried running a new .bat file with only creating a new folder code based on other posts on here...and I couldn't get those to work. I can link them here but that seems a waste of time. Trust me, I've tried to solve this....I enjoy solving and learning but I'm lost. Please help
I'd like to have the batch file create a folder dated with yesterdays date in format of YYYY_MM_DD and then save the files into said folder automatically when it runs rather than me having to move them daily over and over again.
Note: If the date exists I do not want to overwrite the data but would like to drop the files into that location.
