Show date in order I want it to

#1 Post by hendrikbez » 12 Sep 2018 01:25

Hi

I have this code, that I got from the internet, but the date is in the wrong order, how can I change it to show DD/MMMM/YYYY.

Code: Select all

@echo off
set /p host=host Address: 
set logfile=Log_%host%.log

echo Target Host = %host% 
for /f "tokens=*" %%A in ('ping %host% -n 1 ') do (echo %%A && GOTO Ping)
:Ping
for /f "tokens=* skip=2" %%A in ('ping %host% -n 1 ') do (

    echo %date% %time:~0,2%:%time:~3,2%:%time:~6,2% %%A
    timeout 1 >NUL 
    GOTO Ping)

Perhaps if you show us what is the output of your program we could have an idea of the point that should be fixed. "the date is in the wrong order" is not a description of the problem...

If you want the date in a different order then substring the date variable just like you are doing with the time variable.
