I'm trying to use MSSQL 2000 DTS to query a database and save the results in a local file. That file just needs to have a unique file name. So I just want to use the date in the file name. Since I have no experience with VB in DTS, I just want to do a save as in the DTS.

i use a batch file to change the name after the file is created

something like

@echo off
set thedate=%date% %time%
ECHO %thedate%
set yyyy=%thedate:~10,4%
set mm=%thedate:~4,2%
set dd=%thedate:~7,2%
set hh=%thedate:~15,2%
set mi=%thedate:~18,2%
copy filename.csv filename_%yyyy%%mm%%dd%%hh%%mi%.csv
