Change file name based on year and month of lates file


I need to re-write a DTS package which finds the latest file based on the YYYY_MM at the end of the file name in a specific folder.

I want to find the latest file, our current one is called Sales_2019_02.csv . In the folder there is older files but always based on year and month.
The copy the file
Then rename the file to Sales_Current.csv but keep it in the same folder and overwrite the one that is there.

Could someone help me with this please I have been trying some google examples but none seem to work.

Thanks in advance
