Hi Experts,

I receive diff file on a daily bases and the challenge I have is the file names are different each time I get a diff backup but only the date.

I'm attemping to the get the following date format for my script 16042014 - ddmmyyyy but I seem to be getting 2014-04-16.
 
set @datestring = convert(NVARCHAR(112),getDate(),23)

23 isn't a valid date format. If you want ddmmyy try:
select replace(convert(varchar(10), getdate(), 103), '/', '')
