Topic "Trying to use wild card in GET"

Author Message



I'm trying to automate the process of retrieving a file on a daily basis. My script seems to work up to the point of copying the file to the directory I have listed. Below is my script and my log. I'm getting a "is not file!" message. Any assistance is appreciated!

option batch abort
option confirm off
open sftp_login_name:the_password@
cd /059576/059576_SCRedemption/Redemption
Get FIS_TCM_REDEEM*.txt G:/Scorecard

I assume that G:/Scorecard is a directory.
If that's correct, use G:\Scorecard\ (note the slashes, particularly the second).
