Error in Zipping a file


I am trying to create a zip file of a csv by running below script.
zip -r Daily_DB_`date '+:%d/%m/%y'` DBA_checks.csv

But I am getting below error
zip I/O error: No such file or directory
zip error: Could not create output file (Daily_DB_:02/11/

However when I run below script it works fine.
zip -r Daily_DB DBA_checks.csv

Can anyone help please.

Due to the slashes ( / ) in the filename the shell thinks you have a directory Daily_DB_:02 containing a directory 11 where the file should be created. I recomend not use slash and colon as part of a filename.
