Save a File with a filename that contains a variable?!

Define a variable $filename as the complete pathname of the file, for example,

Set Variable[$filename;Value;"filewin:/C:/Path/BackUp_" & $TodayName" & ".fp7"]

and then use Save a Copy as

Save a Copy as["$filename";copy]

Here fill in the location between filewin:/ and BackUp_. In the Save a Copy as, when you specify the Output File simply type $filename into the Output File Path List.

You are right about variables being FM8 feature, however, the use of $TodayName in the formula made me think that FM8 was being used despite the FM7 declaration in the profile.

I do not know any way to achieve this in FM7 without external help, either an OS script or a plug-in.
