I am triying to increment a filename wiith 000,001,002. I am exporting a file from SQl server that may or may not have more than one file in a day. I want to A concatenate todays date plus increment a number to the end of the file. concatenating the date works fine but incrementing the number does not. any ideas?
set @Counter = '000'
Set @Counter = @Counter + 1
@Date = CONVERT(char(8),GETDATE(),112)
SET @bcpCommand = 'bcp "Select * from yourtable" queryout C:\Test'+ @Date + '+@Counter+'.txt -c -t"," -Syourservername -Uusername -Ppassword'
EXEC master..xp_cmdshell @bcpCommand
