Hi tim,

well i tried what your script but i do have an error
>>> import datetime
>>> yesterday = datetime.date.today () - datetime.timedelta (days=1)
>>> print yesterday.strftime ("%d%m%y")
SyntaxError: invalid syntax (<pyshell#2>, line 1)

when i jus check the variable i.e yesterday i do get the out put but its in a different format
datetime.date(2009, 10, 21)
it seems like the conversion that is where the error is coming form 

I want it to be like 211009 

Thank you
