      I have three macros within MSP2103 that generate a backup of one of the three MPP files that I update frequently.


      Running the macro OVER-WRITES the Back-up file of the of the MMP file I currently have open:
      (The macros performs Save As to over-write the backup file then a Close and then re-Opens the working MPP file.)

      macro BACKUP_DELTA >>>> S:\Projects\DELTA\DELTA_BACKUP.mpp
      macro BACKUP_DELTA >>>> S:\Projects\TETRA\TETRA_BACKUP.mpp
      macro BACKUP_QUADRA >>>> S:\Projects\QUADRA\QUADRA_BACKUP.mpp

      Is anyone aware of a technique to design these macros such that a new unique Back-up file is CREATED c/w the date of creation… as shown below ?

      macro BACKUP_DELTA >>>> S:\Projects\DELTA\DELTA_2019-08-26.mpp
      macro BACKUP_DELTA >>>> S:\Projects\TETRA\TETRA_2019-08-26.mpp
      macro BACKUP_QUADRA >>>> S:\Projects\QUADRA\QUADRA_2019-08-26.mpp
