Java taking the output of awk command to a new file

Code:
cat doc | nawk -v da="${date}" '$23>199 {print $0 > "doc"+da+".txt"}'

Every time(need to run every day) i run this, i want to a create a new file "doc_01 Aug.txt".

Basically, i want to create a new file with date appended in it.

I am able to work it out.
i think it was not working cause date command output also contains spaces. It was having trouble creating a filename with spaces.
