[resolved] Can a tFileCopy component to search for a wildcard filename?

I have a file that has a date appended to the end of it. So in this example, it would be test_20110415.txt. Is it possible for the filename to be a wildcard? The file exists and it should pick it up. Thanks.
I can't attach a picture of the tFileCopy component, but under filename I have: "/u02/test/test_*.txt"

I dont think that will work...
try using a tFileList and provide file mask as test_*.txt , then pass this file name fetched by tFileList to u r tFileCopy Component.
(String)globalMap.get("tFileList_1_CURRENT_FILEPATH"); will contain the full path with fileName
