Hi

When i run my JMP script it generates a lot of different graph that I save as PNG pictures. I would like JMP to each time I run the script to create a folder named with the date and time that the script is run and save the PNG files in that folder. I have looked around, but could not find anybody doing this from JMP script. Can it be done? If not, is there a workaround?

Best Regards

This is working for me in JMP 9 on Windows.

baseDir = "C:\temp\";
dir = baseDir || Substitute(MDYHMS(Today()), "/", "-", ":", ".");

CreateDirectory(dir);

Great!  I'll also add a method for JMP 8 users:

kernel32 = LoadDLL("kernel32");
kernel32 << DeclareFunction( "CreateDirectoryW",
          Convention( STDCALL ),
          Alias( "CreateDirectory" ),
          Arg( UnicodeString(260), "Path"),     // The directory to create
          Arg( IntPtr, ""),               // Security descriptor. 0 = default
          Returns( int32 )
);

baseDir = "C:\temp\";
dir = baseDir || Substitute(MDYHMS(Today()), "/", "-", ":", ".");

kernel32 << CreateDirectory(dir,0);
