For the last 3 days no reply to my thread.......... Smilie

I could do a selection and how to proceed to go for execution of the command in one line.

find /global/Oracle/BACKUP/fsdev/EXP/ Fexp*.* -mtime -3 ## this would get me files three days old.

can any one improve/alter/better this code? Smilie

look at -exec option of find

find /source_dir/ Fexp*.* -mtime -3 -exec cp {} /target_dir \;

Thanks sssow!

This also works good: Smilie

find /global/Oracle/BACKUP/fsdev/EXP/Fexp.log -mtime -3 | xargs -I {} cp {} /global/Oracle/BACKUP/fsdev/
