Ive designed a report which runs each day via our Business Objects server. Ive been asked to name the file with the previous days daye in the title so it would ready like this


Is there a way in Business Objects to do this?

Ive noticed in the box where i type the what I want the file name to be is adds %ext% at the end which deals with the extension of the file. Would it be possible to add the date using something like %dateyyyymmdd% or something like that, is this type of thing supported?
