Trying to get the week number on the end of my backup file name

$a = get-date
$BackUpTarget = “C:\ROCTeam\PowerShell\SQLDailyBackUp\ProdBackUp” + $a.DayOfWeek.tostring + “.BaK”
Backup -SqlDatabase -ServerInstance “.” -Database “Joedata” -BackupFile BackUpTarget
$BackUpTarget
Get-Variable BackUpTarget -ValueOnly

Joseph,
Welcome to the forum. :wave:t4:

BTW: When you post code or sample data or console output please format it as code using the preformatted text button ( </> ). Simply place your cursor on an empty line, click the button and paste your code.
Thanks in advance

You can get the week number with the following code

Get-Date -UFormat %V

This does not seem to work either

Backup -SqlDatabase -ServerInstance “.” -Database “Joedata” -BackupFile “C:\ROCTeam\PowerShell\SQLDailyBackUp\ProdBackUp.bak”

</
$a = get-date
Get-Date -UFormat %V
$BackUpTarget = “C:\ROCTeam\PowerShell\SQLDailyBackUp\ProdBackUp” + V + “.BaK”
Backup -SqlDatabase -ServerInstance “.” -Database “Joedata” -BackupFile “C:\ROCTeam\PowerShell\SQLDailyBackUp\ProdBackUp.bak”

this does not work?

Instead of

$a = get-date

you do

$a = Get-Date -UFormat %V
