I am using the expressMaint console.  I need the backup file name to be in the following format:


Is there any way to do this?

There is no way to specify this at the moment. It shouldn't be too difficult to add this functionality. I'll take a look at making the filename format configurable

Added -BF parameter to version

To get your desired result use -BF $(DB)_7080_$(DATE)

HI i need to be able to use a syntax like this  _BF $(DB) only..... not possible right now if i see this right...  Why ?   we want the name to be 100% the same every time... (Since we are using a special way to backup theese files to remote location)...

Is this possible to fix ...
