vse ftp get using wildcard - no such file or directory error (4 posts)

    getting this error when using wildcard, but when using constant name, no issues.

    the remote file has a timestamp in the name, thus causing the need for a wildcard *

    example of the remote name test_201303151855.dat

    no, using vse ftp

    trying to get a remote file that has datestamp in the filename, copy to mainframe

    this works
    test_mvr_results_westrsv_201303141855.dat %TSTFILE,ESDS,FB,100

    this does not
    get test_mvr_results_westrsv_*.dat %TSTFILE,ESDS,FB,100
    get test_mvr_results_westrsv_*.* %TSTFILE,ESDS,FB,100

    nothing using a wildcard has worked.

    thank you
