My requirement is transmit a file to destination via connect direct and append date.

Here is the description

I am sending a file from mainframes to windows( say sever1)
consider destination path to be E:\Test

DSN=E:\TEST\test1.txt is not valid (tested) hence gave DSN='E:\TEST\test1.txt' ---- working fine with single quotes

but the issue is i need to send and concatenate it with current date expected output is test1_150219

if &DSN=E:\TEST\test1_

In process DSN= &DSN || &DATE || .txt will resolve to
DSN=E:TEST\test1_20150219 but due to absense of single quote . path is not recogined and if i gave single quote

file transmit as test1_&date -- symbolic parameter is not resolved in single quote .

Please try intrinsic variable in CD in process statement.

&D=%SUBDATE1

and in the DSN field.

&DSN || &D || .txt.

Hi smita,

i tried this way

&dsn = E:\TEST\test1_
&date = %sysdate1

dsn =&dsn || &date || .txt

will resolve to dsn=E:\TEST\test1_150219.txt

but the path is not in single quote so job filing as path is invalid.

tested below path and it worked fine

dsn = 'E:\TEST\test1_&date.txt' in single quote

is there a way i can resolve symbolic parameter and get a path similar to above.

SNODE=ABCDEF -
&DATE=%SUBDATE3 -

&DSNS=\'\ || \D:\\CDTEST\\SOURCE\\TEST\ || \'\ -
&DSN2=&DSNS..&DATE..TXT -
&DISP1=SHR -

How does the underscore get into your name? There is no underscore in the code in your last post. Maybe it is masked by the fact that you have not used the code tags to present your code.

Why not study your code and try and work out what is happening? Try tweaking it and running it until you understand how each bit works?

My guess is that you need to remove one of the dots in one of the places where your double dots are.
