 You can use the NOWMINUS program. This program creates environment
 variables containing date and time information. See <Q:08.15> [How can I
 place date and time information into environment variables?] for more
 information.

 Here is an example of using NOWMINUS to rename the files thisweek.* to
 {lastweeksdate}.*:

        NOWMINUS d7 z7 f1 j0 vLASTWEEK
        ren thisweek.* %LASTWEEK%.*
        set LASTWEEK=
