Working with the GET command

Can you use the GET command to retrieve a remote file weekly when the file name is different each week? I have a CL program where I retrieve a file weekly to my iSeries. It works fine but I have to specify the remote file name each week, as it changes weekly. I have been trying to use wild cards for the name of the remote file and place it in the same file on the 400. GET RRS02*.txt rcwtest/update (replace.

I assume you use FTP so the following is legal:

mget RRS02*.txt rcwtest/update (replace will get all files starting with RRS02 to different members in file update on the iSeries.
