Yeah Bill, I do not want to reuse the TODAY variable external to the shell script, But what I want to say is When I echo $TODAY variable , it is not displaying the Data.
./storedate: +%m/%d/%y: not found

Changing the date in your env will only change it for you and any child
processes you create. Once your shell script exits, the TODAY will
disappear for any new scripts run.
