Hi faulk,

This is strange. I just tested with your variable and I do get the 30082011 folder.
I tested it on version 5.7.3. Which version do you use?

If you test with a execute task and use these settings:


command: c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe
arguments: /c mkdir \var\www\{DATEFORMAT(ddMMyyyy)}

will the directory be created?

Hi ,

i use version 5.7.8 . It is an ftp task (so the execute task you give me will not work).

I try an other way.

how to upload in ftp an entire folder (not just the file present in the folder), but the folder and his files.

Hi faulk,

You might want to try to upload files from a higher level and check the include subfolder checkbox here.
This would create the directory I think.

There is also a create directory option in the ftp task, so this can also do the trick.

You can still you the execute task first and you the output of this task as a variable in your create ftp folder task, but I don't see why the normal dateformat variable isn't working in the create ftp folder task.
