This will rename the *most recent* .csv file in the folder.

Code: Select all

@echo off
for /f "delims=" %%a in ('dir *.csv /b /od') do set "file=%%a"
ren "%file%" "416_%file%"

I think misunderstood your English.

Is there one file created with todays date that you do not want to have renamed?

Or are there more files with todays date?

i.e in folder there are many files like including today file (i.e 20120511.csv and old dated file like 20120510.csv, 20120509.csv etc...) so i want to rename excluding today file (i.e 20120511.csv)

It's easy to do without testing for date if there is only one file every day.

This will skip the newest file in the folder and rename the rest.

@echo off
for /f "skip=1 delims=" %%a in ('dir *.csv /a-d /b /o:-d') do ren "%%a" "416_%%a"

If you put the batch file in C:\data you don't have to put the path in the batch file.

If you really want to put it in there then add it to the DIR command.
