I'm using the copy task to archive and rename zip files. In the source directory i could have more than 1 file, usually do. The file names are like GMO.zip and GCUS.zip and MAFB.zip. I need to move the files to the target directory with the current date attached. Files should be GMO_050710.zip and GCUS._050710.zip and MAFB._050710.zip. I'm able to move one file at a time but is there a way to select all of them and then archive them at once? This is my first time using Automize.

Thanks

Bailey

I presume you are doing the append date via the Append To Filename field. Use the following in the Append to Filename Field to append the date before the extension:
P2::$%YYppdd%$

To select all .zip files, for the filename field, use:
.zip
