list dates produces
20070601
20070604
20070605


How can I captures these dates and use them elsewhere? I tried

list dates > %x (
echo dates= %x
)

What am I doing wrong?

FOR %line IN (@dates) ECHO %line

Or in a batch file,

DO line IN @dates
ECHO %line
ENDDO

Type OPTION to open the configuration dialog, then select the "Command Line" tab. In the "Editing" box at the top right, select "Insert." You may also want to swap the cursor sizes, e.g. set the overstrike cursor to 100% and the insert cursor to 15%.
