Hi,
From my previous topic I want to try and get the script to produce a log file which includes the date stamp

ie

> daily_report.`date "+\%Y\%m\%d_\%H\%M"`.log 2>&1

from other cron jobs on the system this produces something similar to

/tmp/load_addresses.20060706_1201.log
so you can see that the date and time are nicely formated. However when I run with the above syntax I get the following output

daily_report.\2006\07\06_\16\02.log

how can I remove the '\' characters

regards

Alan.

ps I do not know how to script and am just picking it up as I go along
