Hello i would like a batch file which when run will insert a little bit of text and the current time and date..

If possible i would like this to append to any other text already in the text file and have a break on each insert of text.

The name of the text file is log.txt

Many thanks

Ollie

Thanks,

I have used the following in a single batch file.

date /T >> log.txt
time /T >> log.txt
echo MS04-007 >> log.txt
echo -END- >> log.txt


The output in the file is

Wed 24/03/2004
18:41
MS04-007
-END-

Can i get this all on one line ?????

Thanks
