SFTP using Get with variable file name

I am unable to use SFTP with a 'get' on a file that has a date variable in the file name using wildcard characters. I have attempted using an asterik as a wild card for the date and I have tried using question marks for the date characters in the file name. I get the error message 'no such file name or directory'. Any thoughts for transferring a file with a variable date in the name using SFTP?

    First, what is "SFTP"? Is it SSH File Transfer Protocol? Or is it Secure FTP (FTP over SSH)? And what platforms are on both ends? I.e., which clients and servers are being used? Finally, show us a command string that you are using. -- Tom
