Not sure I completely understand, but depending on your OS - you can try:

@echo off
set /p filename=Which file would you like to search for?
dir .\%filename%
echo %filename%

The string I inputed is only part of filename, for example, when I input '12', I like to get '*12*.*'

I didn't understand that from your original question - why did you accept this one if it wasn't a complete answer?
I shoot for an "A" grade, so...
Change the "dir" line to

dir .\*%filename%*

and that should do it for you! : )
