The input data does not contain sales_date, but it is to be taken
from the date attached to the file name. In unix I can capture the
date using the "cut" command and store it in a variable. But in
windows I do not know how.
Can you share me your knowledge in windows batch programming please?, on how to handle this problem. Or can you give me site where I could
learn batch programming in windows.
Abhay yes it is free..you can go to http://www.cygwin.com/ for downloading..open source just like linux..if you want the commercial which is slightly better then you can download the MKS toolkit www.mks.com
well i assumed he wanted the current date..i should have asked :-)
