Replace And Save As New File

First of all, thanks for the handy tool.
What I want to do is have an option to save the updated file as a new file.

For instance...
I have a template text file.
I'm running a batch file that does a find/replace of some text, but I don't want that template to be changed.
I want the updated file to be in a totally different spot
I don't think I have the luxury of copying the file, to the new spot, and then doing the replace (an action automatically occurs when the file lands in the new spot).
I guess I could copy to a temp spot, update, copy to the real spot, delete the temp spot.
That seems like too much work, though.

I tried just adding > newfile.txt, to the end of the line, but it updated the original and created an empty new file.
