How to visible a filename*esy pattern related all files simultaneously from the directory. Please find the below code and suggest.

Const SOME_PATH As String = "C:\Anderson\"
Dim file As String
file = Dir(SOME_PATH & "filename*esy" & ".")

If (Len(file) > 0) Then
  MsgBox ("Found")
  MsgBox ("Not Found")
End If
End Sub
