Ideally, I want to use one line of code to copy all files from one directory to another destination but need to preface the hour of the day to the destination filename.

Example: filename.txt becomes 10-filename.txt if done between 10am and 11am

Can I do this in one "file system" copy statement or do I have to loop thru contents of a folder doing it one file at a time?

Hi Rich,

You will need to loop through the files in order to go ahead and add the preface to the filename.

I apologize for the inconvenience.
