vbScript locate file based on first few characters

I'm developing a script that will attach a number of files to an email and send the email.

Could somebody help me with the correct code that can locate a file within a folder that begins "01012014"
These first 8 characters will be unique

Thanks

try this to start
dim objShell, objFSO
Dim myFolderPath, myFilePrefix
Set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

myFolderPath = "C:\ee"
myFilePrefix = "01012104": iLPrefix = Len(myFilePrefix)

Set oFolder = objFSO.GetFolder(myFolderPath)
Set oFiles = oFolder.Files()
Dim oFile
For Each oF In oFolder.Files()
	If Left(oF.Name,myFilePrefix) = myFilePrefix Then
		'  //found the file
		Set oFile = oF
		Exit For
	End If
Next

If oFile Is Nothing Then
	MsgBox "No matching file found"
	
End If
