I have the following job running daily and dropping a file to the specified location.

EXEC xp_cmdshell 'bcp "exec ErX.dbo.sp_Ap1" queryout \\vat\users\L\IReport.xml -c -T'

How do I incorporate datetime into the file name IReport.
Thanks!

This might work:

EXEC xp_cmdshell 'bcp "exec ErX.dbo.sp_Ap1" queryout \\vat\users\L\IReport' + convert(varchar(8), getdate(), 112)  + '.xml -c -T'

declare @cmd varchar(128)
declare @filename varchar(24)

set @filename = 'IReport_' + CAST(DATEPART(Y, GETDATE()) as VARCHAR) + '_' +
                             CAST(DATEPART(M, GETDATE()) as VARCHAR) + '_' +
                             CAST(DATEPART(D, GETDATE()) as VARCHAR) + '.xml'
set @cmd = 'bcp "exec ErX.dbo.sp_Ap1" queryout \\vat\users\L\' + @filename + ' -c -T'

Change it to
declare @cmd varchar(128)
declare @filename varchar(24)

set @filename = 'IReport_' + CAST(DATEPART(YY, GETDATE()) as VARCHAR) + '_' + 
                             CAST(DATEPART(MM, GETDATE()) as VARCHAR) + '_' + 
                             CAST(DATEPART(DD, GETDATE()) as VARCHAR) + '.xml'
set @cmd = 'bcp "exec ErX.dbo.sp_Ap1" queryout \\vat\users\L\' + @filename + ' -c -T'                             
EXEC xp_cmdshell @cmd
