Last Modified: 2012-05-10
Hi All,
 I have a task of copying previous days log file and rename it to the name of the server to which it belongs and then to generate a statistics page. With help of few friends in this forum i got the script to copy files with yesterday's date using
" dt = DateAdd("d",-1, Date)
yesterday = Right(Year(dt), 2) & Right("0" & Month(dt), 2) & Right("0" & Day(dt), 2)
strfilename = "J:\log\" & "ex" & Right(Year(dt), 2) & Right("0" & Month(dt), 2) & Right("0" & Day(dt), 2) & ".log"
But got stucked with another problem the name of the file is ex110103.log, this file needs to renamed to server1110103.log before generating the report is this possible to do with VB script.
