Vrf Timestamp filename method?

Question asked by VRFuser on May 7, 1998
Drew,
Use the to string function to get the date/ time into a string format.
The write statement in the to string box should be similar to :

WRITE TEXT now()DATE:DMY TIME:HMS:H24 EOL

Note that I used the now() function directly in the to string block
