I have .xml file in my folder.
I want to specifically transfer them to another folder.
 
For Example:

If you want to move all files except one single file, you can rename it before moving the other files and restore it when your done.
 
set KEEPFILE=2012P02B.XML
set TARGETDIR=C:\FOLDERB
 
ren %KEEPFILE% %KEEPFILE%.kept
move *.XML %TARGETDIR%
ren %KEEPFILE%.kept %KEEPFILE%

Use the wildcards: "*" is "any text", "?" is "any character"
Try:
copy 2012P02?.XML C:\FOLDERB
