Export with a date stamp in the file name?

Would anyone know how to export a report in Enterprise Guide as html, and have a date stamp in the filename? This would need to be an automated process.

Example: 2132009ReportA1.html

Thanks,

I think you're looking at writing some Macro code to generate the appropriate file name -- there's no way I know of to incorporate dynamic values into the dialogs in EG for exporting an HTML file.

Would you happen to know of any websites. (getting started in macros for EG) I have never created a maco in EG.

Hi:
I always recommend this as a good starting point:

In SAS Enterprise Guide 4.2, we'll have this feature built in: when you export a file as a repeated step your project, you'll have the option to include a datestamp so as to not overwrite a version that already exists.

Chris, how long until 4.2 comes out? Also is there a beta test out for this?

Thanks,
