editing a txt file using cdm

Hi,

I'm looking for a simple batch file which will edit - delete a part of text a file, lets say arhiv.dat. With a command %date& > arhive.dat I get a file with system date, with a writen name of the day and numbers of the date. What command could I use, to delete the day name, so only numbers would stay.

Thanks

If your date format is "day nn/nn/nnnn" create the date in the file using:

Echo %date:~-10% > arhiv.dat

It gives the following error:

'10.04.2009' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

Am I doing something wrong?
