Yes I will be using MS DOS command prompt and will run this script on a
scheduled date/time using MS Windows task scheduler. Will the below
script still work and how will I type this out in DOS prompt exactly, is
the below correct?

for /F "tokens=1-4 delims=/- " %%A in ('date/T') do wget
http://192.168.02/DataLog.html?FileName=Day_Shift_.csv -O

The goal is to append the system date onto a wget uploaded csv file...

Kind regards

No.  DOS doesn't support slashes in filenames, and doesn't support the
back tick syntax.

Assuming you meant a command prompt window in Windows, you can do
something like this:

for /F "tokens=1-4 delims=/- " %%A in ('date/T') do wget
http://192.168.02/DataLog.html?FileName=Day_Shift_.csv -O

Which may or may not work depending on your locale settings.  You need
to use two % symbols each time in a script, if you try it at the prompt
directly, use one % symbol each time.  If you're actually using DOS, I
have no clue how much of this will work.
