Hi @ashok3105 there are number of ways you could do this. I've attached a workflow which showcases two ways. The first way is building a filepath based on the date and using a Dynamic Input. The second way is using the directory tool which searches for the available files, then I use a filter to choose a file and then use a Dynamic Input. 

Thank you for help . my case has been resolved .
