Hi Experts,

How could I include the date information (mmddyyy: i.e 05242009) in the output file I create with my script that already runs a DSGET to list all members in an AD group?

Thanks in advance.

Simple version if you have the date command output formatted as dd/mm/yyyy or dd.mm.yyyy. If date /t outputs in mm/dd/yyyy or mm.dd.yyyy you can switch the places of Day and Month variables. then you can use %Day%Month%Year in the dsget's output.
Hope it helps
for /F "tokens=1-4 delims=/. " %%i in ('date /t') do (
     set Day=%%i
     set Month=%%j
     set Year=%%k
  )

Here is international-independent version which runs on 2003/XP and up. You can get the time as well.

FOR /F "skip=2 tokens=2-7 delims=," %%A IN ('WMIC Path Win32_LocalTime Get Day^,Hour^,Minute^,Month^,Second^,Year /Format:csv') DO (
	SET Day=%%A
	SET Hour=%%B
	SET Minute=%%C
	SET Month=%%D
	SET Second=%%A
	SET Year=%%F
)

Hey thanks a lot for the quick answer, but let me ask you this: should I embed this in my batch file where I run the dsget? How should I use it?

Just put it in the beginning of the batch file like the example below. Based on your question, I assume you have US regional settings (mm/dd/yyyy) so I edited a bit the first version.
Hope it helps!
@echo off
for /F "tokens=1-4 delims=/. " %%i in ('date /t') do (
     set Month=%%i
     set Day=%%j
     set Year=%%k
  ) 
set FileDate=%Month%%Day%%Year%
 
dsquery user -name SomeUser | dsget user -memberof > SomeUserMembership_%FileDate%.txt

The "international" version has a typo. Here is the correct one:
FOR /F "skip=2 tokens=2-7 delims=," %%A IN ('WMIC Path Win32_LocalTime Get Day^,Hour^,Minute^,Month^,Second^,Year /Format:csv') DO (
        SET Day=%%A
        SET Hour=%%B
        SET Minute=%%C
        SET Month=%%D
        SET Second=%%E
        SET Year=%%F
)
