Automation file export name date time suffix

trying to format the suffix on a file. i need it to be a date timestamp in the following format. YYYYMMDDhhmm There is somthing about the format the system does not like. Any ideas? Version 6.1

Without knowing what error you are encountering it is a bit difficult to respond with something that will be helpful. I am presuming you are on Unix and setting a variable (var=$(date +%Y%m%d%H%M)) and then specifying a file name as file_name_${var}. What issue are you encountering?
