The error msg doesn't seem to indicate it's operating on "home" directory, but rather on the root dir. What's the output of the pwd Display remote working directory. command?

/datafile_18OCT2015_*  not found.sftp> pwdRemote working directory: /sftp> ls

Please use code tags as required by forum rules!

Looks like the working directory is / . (would be clearer had you used tags!) Is there a file "datafile_..." in / ?

Don't pipe through tr. "Oct" is the normal date output; above tr converts every char to upper.
