I have to pick up ALL the files

/ebs/appl/u00/universe01/inbound/universeorders/F1.xml
/ebs/appl/u00/universe01/inbound/universeorders/F2.xml
/ebs/appl/u00/universe01/inbound/universeorders/F222.xml
/ebs/appl/u00/universe01/inbound/universeorders/F3.xml
.......
/ebs/appl/u00/universe01/inbound/universeorders/Fn.xml
