Rename files to date and computer name for the file name

It can be done for DirCopy....

DirCopy("C:New Folder", "C:"& @YEAR & "-" & @MON & "-" & @MDAY & " = " & @ComputerName & " - " & @UserName, 1)

but how to do for files using the FileCopy.? for example...

FileCopy C:New Text document.txt --to--> C:(Current date)(Computer Name) .txt

as DirCopy the example above...

Change it to FileCopy instead of Dircopy, and supply it the name you want to copy the file TO, and it should work.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

ESATU,

Soz for that. I should have considered that English is not your first language and looked at your post count.

You'll find that folks here are more likely to attempt to help you if you post an example of what you've tried already. Nobody is going to write a chunk of code for you... well, unless they're bored, but often what we are looking for is either in the help file or has been posted here already.

Ok.. this my code...

$CN = @ComputerName & " - " & @UserName
$CD = @YEAR & "-" & @MON & "-" & @MDAY
$CT = CurrentTime()
Func CurrentTime()
    $CT = @HOUR
    If $CT > 12 Then
        $CT = $CT -12
        $_M = "PM"
    Else
        $_M = "AM"
    EndIf
    $HM = $CT & "." & @MIN & " " & $_M
    Return ($HM)
EndFunc
FileCopy(@DesktopDir & "Report.txt", @HomeDrive & "Daily Report" & $CD & " " & $CT & " = " & $CN .txt, 9)

I want to change "Report.txt" to "Date Time CompName .TXT"....

You pretty much had it. All I did was added quotes around .txt and then combined to the rest of the string using the & symbol.

I was bored... So ;)

Since @HOUR returns 0-23 your time routine will show the hour after midnight as "0".

It also reports both hour 0 and hour 12 as AM, when hour 12 should be PM.

Maybe something like this:

Func CurrentTime()
    Local $time = @HOUR, $_M = " AM"
    Switch $time
        Case 0
            $time = 12
        Case 13 to 23
            $time -= 12
            ContinueCase
        Case 12
            $_M = " PM"
    EndSwitch
    Return $time & "." & @MIN & $_M
EndFunc
