batch findtext match 2 criteria

I had this question after viewing batch findtext.

Thanks to Bill i now have this

@echo off

set hour=%time:~0,2%
if "%hour:~0,1%" == " " set hour=0%hour:~1,1%
echo hour=%hour%
set min=%time:~3,2%
if "%min:~0,1%" == " " set min=0%min:~1,1%
echo min=%min%
set secs=%time:~6,2%
if "%secs:~0,1%" == " " set secs=0%secs:~1,1%
echo secs=%secs%

set year=%date:~-2%
echo year=%year%
set month=%date:~4,-8%
if "%month:~0,1%" == " " set month=0%month:~1,1%
echo month=%month%
set day=%date:~7,-5%
if "%day:~0,1%" == " " set day=0%day:~1,1%
echo day=%day%

set datef=%hour%-%day%-%month%-%year%
set dayf=%month%-%day%-%year%
set dayil=%month%/%day%/%year%

echo datetimef=%datef%
echo %dayf%
echo %dayil%

pause

set findtext=/c:" DS-" /c:" DSA-"
set findfile="Z:\OP\exa\02-04-18 - Copy.P02"

findstr %findtext% %findfile%

for /f "delims=" %%a in ('findstr %findtext% %findfile%') do echo %%a >> "Z:\OP\test-%month%-%year%.txt

pause

I however now have another requirement, is it possible to only return lines that start with %dayil% ? Like an AND clause?

Try this approach.  The /r invokes regular expression mode.  The /b specifies that the match must be from the start (left end) of the line.  Then each /c is what you are looking for, either one of the two /c's matching is a hit.

In the /c text, we start with the date, then .* means zero or more of any character, then a space followed by your strings, like DSA-

set findtext=/r /b /c:"%dayil%.* DS-" /c:"%dayil%.* DSA-"

And just as a bonus, a slightly smaller way to set the date time variables, that is more resistant to different localized date time formats.

rem Get current date and time in format: YYYYMMDDhhmmss.mmmmmm-zzz
set "Now="
for /f "tokens=* skip=1" %%B in ('wmic os get LocalDateTime') do (if not defined Now set "Now=%%B")
set "year=%Now:~2,2%" & set "month=%Now:~4,2%" & set "day=%Now:~6,2%" & set "hour=%Now:~8,2%" & set "min=%Now:~10,2%" & set "secs=%Now:~12,2%"
