@echo off
cls

set %File_Name%=%1

mkdir C:\Server\ticketing\%File_Name%      
mkdir C:\Server\ticketing\class\%File_Name%
mkdir C:\Server\ticketing\class\type\%File_Name%      


Here I am creating folder by entering argument from command line (C:\>createfolders.bat file1) ,  here I am able to create on folder at a time. But I want to create more then one folder at a time by entering more arguments like C:\>createfolders.bat file1 file2 file3.  Is this possible, if it can how?

Try this:

@echo off

:START

if "%~1"=="" goto :EOF

mkdir "C:\Server\ticketing\%~1"
mkdir "C:\Server\ticketing\class\%~1"
mkdir "C:\Server\ticketing\class\type\%~1"

shift
goto START

Good Luck,
Steve
