Hi sher19, you need to grab the month/day/year?  
Use this...(if echo %date% returns the 'day' for you...)

setlocal enabledelayedexpansion
for %%a in (data processing audit percentages finalized) do call :process %%a
goto :eof

:process
set /p myDir=Enter the %1 folder name:
md "%mydir%_%date:~4,2% %date:~7,2% %date:~10%"
set mydir=
