I'm trying to download a zip file from a SharePoint that includes a version number in the file name, but I want to be able to download the file regardless of the version number.

I tried with the below string, but it didn't work and there was no error.
Const strUrl As String = "\\server\Tools *.zip"

Sub Download_ZipFile()
Dim i As Integer
Const strUrl As String = "\\server\Tools"
Dim strSavePath As String
Dim returnValue As Long

strSavePath = "C:\Users\Public\"
returnValue = URLDownloadToFile(0, strUrl, strSavePath, 0, 0)
