scp command confuse

There is a job to call a .ksh file, in which it will execute "/usr/local/bin/scp Folder1/20070201* Folder2/". (both Folder1 & Folder2 are on same machine)
The log of job is:
...
Folder1/200702010000.txt | 1.2kB | 1.2kB/s | TOC: 00:00:01
scp: warning: stat: 20070201* (src): no such file (server msg: 'syserr: No such file or directory, file: 20070201*')


What could be the problem? Since the size of that file could be recognized, why can not copy it by scp? (I've also checked the timestamp of "Folder1/200702010000.txt" which is early to the time of calling job.)

When in doubt, use an absolute pathname. SCP files are otherwise looked for relative to the home directory of the user's account.


Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
