I need to create export a csv file that should be named with date i.e. file20160811.csv

I have my query.
I tried this:
SET @sql_text = CONCAT("Select * from Table1 into outfile 'C:\desktop\",date_format(NOW(),'%Y%m%d'),".csv'");
PREPARE statement FROM @sql_text;
EXECUTE statement;

I got  error Code 1064, error SQL syntax...

can someone help me to fix this?

Thanks in advance.
