Neil, I assume you're referencing pqact(1) configuration-file entries. pqact(1) doesn't understand the string "YYYMDD" (or "YYYYMMDD"). I don't know where you got that. The string "(1:yyyy)" in a pqact(1) configuration-file entry will be replaced by the 4-digit year derived from the first regular-expression subfield (identified by parentheses) of the product-identifier assuming that the subfield is the day-of-the-month on which the product was created. More information on such string-replacement can be found at <http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/ldm/ldm-current/basics/pqact.conf.html>. I hope this helps. > Guidance on using YYYMDD vs (1:yyyy) etc > > What is the difference between these methods of inclusion of dates in output > filenames? eg.
