My Oracle sql script runs fine,  but I'd like to add to datetime to the spooled file, is there a way of doing that?

Yep, it works, but now I'm getting the literal customer ID, "CustomerID12262012", as the name of the spooled file instead of the value of "Customer ID".

Due to the nature of the information, I can only attach the script as a picture with some column headers blanked out, no sweat however, you'll get the idea, and as for the "customer ID", it's actually a "Donor ID"

If you want both parameters in the name of the output file, you actually want the spool command to be this:

spool c:\&donor_id&todaysdate

Alternatively, you could also put a period between the parameters (it actually outputs as the same thing - you'd need a double period if you wanted a single period in the file name)

spool c:\&donor_id.&todaysdate
