firt I have to find the directory in a directory

ls -ld */ will do it

once I find it is directory, I have to check the first 3 character of the directory

drwxr-xr-x 2 mqm mqm 512 Jan 20 09:36 DQAT001/
drwxr-xr-x 3 mqm mqm 512 Jan 25 12:38 DQAT004/
drwxr-xr-x 2 mqm mqm 512 Apr 20 07:55 DQAT0040/
drwxr-xr-x 2 mqm mqm 512 Apr 20 10:31 DQAT0041/
drwxr-xr-x 2 mqm mqm 512 Jul 13 2005 DQAT005/
drwxr-xr-x 2 mqm mqm 512 May 2 09:33 DQBT007/
