Batch File Script to move files from changing directories

Hi,
I need help with how I can get a bat file to move files from folders that change name.
We have 2 files that get generated and they go into folders named "date" (so 2.10.15, 2.11.15, 2.12.15, etc etc)
How do I tell my script how to go to these changing folder names?
Currently I just have:
$ftp = "ftp://123.123.123.123/
$user = "Username"  
$pass = "Password"
$uploadfpath = "L:\Folder1\Archive\Folder2\Folder3\2015\02\20150211"
So it all stay consistent up until Folder3 - then the folders go year, then month and then a folder called 20150211 and in this folder are the 2 files I need to copy to my FTP.
I can get it to work with the above line but that only works for that specific folder/date - tomorrow it will not work.
Any help?
Thanks,
Dan

for the current date, you can use:
set today=%date%
set yyyy=%today:~-4%
set mm=%today:~4,2%
set dd=%today:~7,2%

$uploadfpath = "L:\Folder1\Archive\Folder2\Folder3\%yyyy%\%mm%\%yyyy%%mm%%dd%"

BTW, your code doesn't look like .bat code. But, your topic and title mentions batch, and the body says ...get a bat file... So... I responded anyway.
