Add Date variable to DB backup to file

Hi All

Running AIX 5.3 ECC6, and Maxdb 7.8

I use DBA Calender to schedule my backups

When creating a backup template for backup to file is there a way that i can add a date variable.

So that in the filename that is written to disk the date is included in the filename

Because when i backup this flat file to tape using TSM i want the date of the backup to show.

    Getting a date variable automatically in templates would be difficult. You can think of creating templates day wise ( Mon, Tue,...Sun). Atleast you can have a track which day backup is moved to TSM.
