Hi,

try this

         String[] dateParts = DateTime.Now.ToLongDateString().Split(' ');
           
        String path = @"C:/folder/folder/" + dateParts[1] + dateParts[0]+ "/filename";
   
obviously substitute folder and filename with the real bits of your path.

hope this helps

 String[] dateParts = DateTime.Now.ToLongDateString().Split(' ');
           
String path = @"C:/folder/folder/" + dateParts[1].ToLower() + dateParts[0]+ "/filename";
