DOS alternative Upload Images   Link   Email

I still use DOS to open folders by year and month as follows (along with other tasks).  What is a better alternative to using the below DOS code?

For /f "tokens=2-4 delims=/ " %%a in ('date /t') do (set mydate=%%c-%%a-%%b)
For /f "tokens=1-2 delims=/:" %%a in ("%TIME%") do (set mytime=%%a%%b)

set year=%date:~10,4%
set month=%date:~4,2%
set day=%date:~7,2%
set filename=%year%_%month%_%day%

start %windir%\explorer.exe "d:\j\%YEAR%\%MONTH%"

I know you aren't there yet but Richard starts covering the File System Object Starting in Developer 33 and continues on in 34 and 35.  Those may be of use (eventually).  

One thing I would add is, "If it ain't broke, why fix it?".  I don't see an issue with how you are doing it now.
