I know it is something sort of like this 🙂
$Report= "C:\temp\report-$Date.html"

I need $Report to always have current date in the file name

I also tried
$Report= "C:\temp\report"+$Date+".html"
which did not work either 🙂

Concatenating paths and variables is more complicated than strings 🙂
I didn't find any good examples either...

Thank you for your help,
Tom

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...

Hi tommls, yes a subexpression is the way to go. A subexpression is an expression that's part of a larger expression. So by doing $("Something") will achieve what you need.
