Is there a way in AIX to only list the file name?

If I run the command below, only the file name is displayed.
ls -1 /tmp/

If I run the command like this, the path is included in the file name.   How can I get only the file name like the first command above?
ls -1 /tmp/*.txt

use this command

#ls /tmp/*.txt | awk -F/ '{ print $3 }'

if your directory is changed, suppose /var/log
then the argument is changed

#ls /tmp/*.txt | awk -F/ '{ print $4 }'

means increase in dir depth, increase the number of argument
0
