Is there a way in a bat file to add a time stamp to a file copy.  For example,

copy \\Apps1\FTPFile\ \\Apps2\UploadFiles\FileUpload(time stamp).zip

I am trying to use this command:

for /F "tokens=2,3,4 delims=/ " %%i in ("%date%") do set d=%%k%%i%%j

for /F "tokens=1,2,3 delims=:. " %%i in ("%time%") do set t=%%i%%j%%k

echo %d%-%t%
copy D:\Data\Comm\BSIQ.txt D:\Plugins\Worldmt940\BSIQ%d%%t%.txt

It only reurns the file name with no time date stamp.

The operating system is WINNT
