Okay, so I inherited a web site project.  I need to update the files that I've modified.  I need to identify which files have been changed since 02/06/2008 and later BUT I need to also filter out certain folders.  I thought if I could do a dir in dos and output it to a txt file (or csv file), I could filter out the extraneous data and end up with a list of files and directories that need to push out with the updated data.  What do you think?  Is this feasible?

Cheers,
Chip

the following thread might help you create the bat file you need - it is on how to use dos to copy files of a certain date to a new folder - hope it is kind of what you meant or at least will get you started

the guy asking the question is a newbie to bat files and the other guy responding really goes out of his way to explain things so you might want to be sure and read the whole thread.
