I am working at creating an osql statement to run with a SQL job, allowing it to run at a set schedule.  I will be passing the -o switch in order to force it to save to a file, but is there any way to pass a variable into the file name?
Ideally, I would want to append the date to the filename so that there is not a fear of it being overwritten.

Thanks

Use SSIS package instead of your osql statement.
