batch script to create a folder in each sub-folder

I need a batch script to perform some file functions, I have user directories like:
user1
user2
user3
...so on

In each of user folder there are some files.
I'd like to make a new folder called "Archive Files" in each user directory and move only the specific files on their root folder (i.e. user1/*.xyz) to the "Archive Folder"

Once again, I need a script to:
1- Go in user folder
2- Create a directory called "Archive Files"
3- Move the *.xyz files in "userX" to the "Archive Files" folder
4- then start the step 1 again to the next user directory.

Thanks, I would really appriciate your help.

Nevermind!

I got the solution after doing some tries:
============== I made the following batch to do the job =======
for /f "delims=" %%a in ('dir /ad /s /b') do (
cd /d "%%a"
md "New Folder"
move *.txt "New Folder"
)

=====================================================
Thanks anyways

This is intended to be run from the folder that contains user1, user2, user3 etc.

rem Create the archive folders if not already there
for /f %%f in ('dir user* /b /ad') do if not exist %%f\"Archive Folder" md %%f\"Archive Folder"
rem Archive the files
for /f %%f in ('dir user* /b /ad') do move /y %%f\*.xyz %%f\"Archive Folder"
