@aGerman, the quotations solve the date problem for me. Thank you!
@foxidrive, those are welcome modifications. I test the script and it works great. Thank you!

Re: System Date -90 Days and -180 Days

@penpen
Your script gives the date in the correct format which I could probably use with aGermans script.
Screenshot

Code: Select all

SET_DATE_FORMAT = "MM-DD-YY"
DATE_FORMAT     = "DDDD MM/DD/YYYY"
07/13/2013
Press any key to continue . . .


Thank you!

Re: System Date -90 Days and -180 Days

@aGerman I hard coded the date in your script changing call :DateToJDN %date% jdn= to call :DateToJDN 07/13/2013 jdn= Screenshot C:\!DOSTIPS>aGerman2.bat Today minus 90 days: 20130414, minus 180 days: 20130114 Press any key to continue . . . The math is working I'll figure out the %date% part later....

Re: System Date -90 Days and -180 Days

@aGerman For clarification, when I was testing Antonio's script I was looking for results in the format of: Today minus 90 days: 04-14-2013, minus 180 days: 01-14-2013 Instead, my results were: Today minus 90 days: -47130826, minus 180 days: -47130528 Thanks for your post. I'm off to go test it now....

Re: batch variable progress bar string manipulation

@OP,
Some advice. Your calling Endoro a name ("copy cat") on another forum may curtail further help on your failed
attempt at a batch script on this forum. I suggest you refrain from such snarky comments when asking for help.

Your welcome!

Just ignore it.

foxidrive,
Did you try using the /XJ switch?

/XJ :: eXclude Junction points. (normally included by default).

@Aacini Don't you liked Endoro's answer at: <snip> Good catch Aacini. Looks to me like Endoro is hard at work compiling a solution for the OP on that forum. It would be a shame for someone in this forum to spend a lot of time and effort to duplicate Endoro's work. Endoro is quite capable of problem ...
