How to attach multiple .csv files using mutt command

I need to attach all files starting with 'BusinessReport' using mutt command.

It could be any number of files in that directory, say BusinessReport_01, BusinessReport_03, BusinessReport_04 etc.

Is there a way to attach all files where filename like BusinessReport_* and sent it using mutt command?
Please help.

I don't have a specific example, but:
       -a file [...]
              Attach a file to your message using MIME.  To attach multiple
              files, separating filenames and recipient addresses with "--" is
              mandatory, e.g. mutt -a img.jpg *.png -- addr1 addr2.

-- excerpt from man mutt, q.v.

Mutt 1.5.18 (2008-05-17)

Best wishes ... cheers, drl

mutt -s "Subject:`date +"%b %d"` " -a $tmp/BusinessReport_* -- < message_body

This attaches all files starting with the name BusinessReport_
