Thank you for your help, Tom June 1, 2016 at 6:50 pm #41268 tommlsParticipant Nvm, I finally figured out how to search for what I needed. I found this way: $Report = "C:\temp\report-$(get-date -f yyyy-MM-dd).html" from http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1954203/powershell-timestamp-on-file-name Thank you, everyone...

So by doing $("Something") will achieve what you need. Author Posts You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
