I want to make a command log file using cmdlog, but I want it to be unique
every time I begin Stata. Right now my command is

cmdlog using "D:\statalogs\comlog",append

I want it to read something like
Cmdlog using "D:\statalogs\comlog"+"$S_DATE"

or some other unique identifier but every time I try it, the program aborts
when it gets to the '+' sign. Can someone please tell me how to get this to
work.

Many thanks in advance.
