This is the file name in question
I am trying to create a bash script to read into files with yesterday's date on the file name while retaining the rest of the files name. I would like for
$y to equal the name of the file with a formula output with the exact date in the middle. So far this is what I have:
To get yesterday's date in the correct format, I made x:
x="date -d yesterday +%Y-%m-%d" y="OD_Orders_$x.csv"
This issue with this is that the results when I do a echo
$y gives me this:
OD_Orders_date -d yesterday +%Y-%m-%d.csv
I need to show the value of
echo $y correctly without it showing the formula. I need
$y to input the filename with yesterday's date in the correct format because I want to use it more later on within this script.
