Subject How to have zip process create a unique filename based on datetimestamp or timestamp?
Version 6.x

Message Hello...

Thankyou for your response. I downloaded V.6

I now have a question reguarding the "Name for ziped archive" when creating a zip file. I'm not a programer and can't seem to figure out a way to have your zip process create a unique filename such as datetimestamp.zip.

I looked at all your reame's and also your website for examples and have given up.

Any suggestions?

Thank you

Reply1 Hi Randy,

Thanks for using Automize. You have two choices
1) enter a regular filename in the filename field and select
the 'Date/time' item in 'Append To Zip Archive name' option
2) leave the 'Append to Zip Archive Name' as 'None' and for
the filename field,use:
$%DATE::ppddYY%$.zip

Also read the help menu / help file / english / variables / System variables / Date variable for more information on using
variables. You do not have to be a programmer. Just follow the examples there.

Sincerely,
Hitek Software
