Thank you very much!
My script works correctly
After using TIMESTAMP feature and testing results via /log

Re: batch script and wildcard (problem with *)

I do not see any problem. Please attach a full session log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate the session log file, use /log=C:\path\to\winscp.log command-line argument. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you can mark the attachment as private.

Did you check the output of the batch file? How does the final WinSCP command-line look like?

Though are you aware, that you can implement this easily with WinSCP TIMESTAMP feature?

... "get *%%TIMESTAMP-1D#yyyy-mm-dd%%.csv" ...

Re: batch script and wildcard (problem with *)

set WinSCP="C:\winscp\winscp.exe"
cd C:\lftp-4.6.5.win64-openssl\bin
date.exe "+%Y-%m-%d" --date="1 day ago" > C:\Temp\tmp
set /p x= < C:\Temp\tmp
del C:\Temp\tmp
set protocol=ftp
set user=MY_USER
set password="MY_PASSWORD"
set host=SOMEHOST
%WinSCP%  %protocol%://%user%:%password%@%host% /command "lcd C:\recon\input" "get *%x%.csv" "exit"

Re: batch script and wildcard (problem with *)

It must be something about your batch file. As such, it's probably not a WinSCP problem, but if you post your batch file, we can take a look anyway.

batch script and wildcard (problem with *)

Please, explain me this issue.
when i'm using this command from cmd (manually) get *%x%.csv
everything working fine
when i use it in batch script, wincp copy all files from directory.
where x = 2020_02_03
