Format a DOS date as yyyymmdd

By Clinton Herring,

Do you run jobs that call BAT files where you wish you could include a formatted date stamp in the output name of an OSQL file? Well, you can using the DOS 'FOR' command. I named a variable FILEDATE and use it as:

path\Filename_%FILEDATE%.txt

(Note: A BAT file requires double %% in the 'FOR' command in order to work.)
