So you have a text file, and you want to import it into a dataset?
And what exactly is your problem?

Please show the exact name of the file.
If you are trying to use a SAS function to determine a value for TODAY to build the correct file name it is possible but we would need to see what the file name looks like to make useable suggestions.
Another optiom though likely more complicated is to use the SAS external file functions to open a directory (DOPEN), search for properties (Doptnum ), identify the property that the operating system uses to specify creation date (Doptname) and find files with the desired date (Dread) and likely a few more steps.
