you can use this example to try out what you want to do.

i have used it successfuly to make copy the downladed files with date and time to do the archival.

@echo off
rem rename syn.dat With Name Date and Time
for /f "tokens=2-4 delims=/- " %%a in ('date /t') do set XDate=%%a-%%b-%%c
for /f "tokens=1-2 delims=: " %%a in ('time /t') do set XTime=%%a-%%b
copy c:\digatmos\data\syn.dat c:\digatmos\data\%XDate%%XTime%_syn.dat
copy c:\digatmos\data\fsusyn.dat c:\digatmos\data\%XDate%%XTime%_fsusyn.dat
copy c:\digatmos\data\albanyboy.dat c:\digatmos\data\%XDate%%XTime%_albanyboy.dat
copy c:\digatmos\data\codupa.dat c:\digatmos\data\%XDate%%XTime%_codupa.dat

copy command copies the .dat files with date time suffix.

I use a script for each hour I want a plot
with the following:

# write map to gif file
EXPORT,F:\program files\DigAtmEquinox\archive\@FFZ@MMZ@DDZ12.gif

you could add any name along with the @FFZ etc. I've just added 12 for 12:00 in this example
