Copy files into current dated folder


I had a major previous issue moving files from Linux to a Windows shared folder. This is the code that resolved my issue, using Expect:

#!/bin/bash
expect -c "
spawn scp -p file.xlsx exg85@hostname://export/home/exg85/reports/destinationoffile
expect "assword"
send "mypswd\r"
expect "reports]$"
spawn scp -p file2.xlsx exg85@hostname://export/home/exg85/reports/destinationoffile
expect "assword"
send "mypswd\r"
expect "reports]$"
send "exit\r"
interact "

Now, I would like to autogenerate a folder that would be named the current date and move the file into this folder on a daily basis.

I would avoid use of "expect" and use keys instead. The former is clunky and unsafe.

Code:
date=$(date +"%F");
ssh -i /home/trickydba/.ssh/your_key_ed25519 exg85@hostname mkdir -p /export/home/exg85/reports/$date/
scp -i /home/trickydba/.ssh/your_key_ed25519 \
    /path/to/source/file*.xlst \
    exg85@hostname:/export/home/exg85/reports/$date/
