Dear All,

I need a bat file for this :

I have a folder that contain several files, for example Folder A with 3 files : Susan.log, Mitch.log, Bryan.log. OS : Windows XP

I want to copy those 3 files to folder B, but I need when copied the file name will append date time with format : yyyymmdd. With the yyyymmdd is fetched from the modified date of those 3 files.

So
File in Source Folder         Modified Date               The result of copy in Folder B
=================        ==============         =============================
Susan.log                           23-March-2010            Susan-20100323.log
Mitch.log                             18-Dec-2009                Mitch-20091218.log
Bryan.log                            7-Dec-2008                 Bryan-20081207.log

Please give me the bat file for these results : copy files from folder A to Folder B, with the files name including the modified date of the corresponding files.
