A simple "find" will do the trick:
type "SomeFile.txt" | find /i "*WARNING" >"SeparateFile.txt"

Open in new window

If you want to add to the separate file instead of overwriting it, use double ">":
type "SomeFile.txt" | find /i "*WARNING" >>"SeparateFile.txt"

Open in new window

type is not a command , you are just describing what needs to be typed, right?

TYPE actually is a command, it reads a file and displays it to standard output.

You can actually do the same thing slightly simpler as:

find /i "*WARNING" <"SomeFile.txt" >"SeparateFile.txt"

"type" is a regular command; I use it to avoid the separator line(s) that appears when using find "something" file.exe I find it easier to read than redirecting the output like billprew suggested.
