Copying a file from SFTP with date time


I have a file named datafile-2014-06-30.txt in an SFTP location and I am trying to copy to a different location. (Date is today's date)
I have written the following script, but it fails with an error: Can't get attributes of the file '%file%'

option batch on
option confirm off
set file=datafile-%date:~7,2%-%date:~10,4%-%date:~4,2%.txt
open s
get %file%

Any help on this would be great. Thanks.
