Find files in current directory, not subdirectories


I have files in a directory that I want to move to an archive directory. ie

/report/*.rtn
archive to ..
/report/archive/*.rtn

The report directory also contains sub-directories, ie ..

/report/fish/*.rtn
/report/teeth/*.rtn

.. I dont want to archive those files.

If I run this command ..

find *.rtn -mtime +60

.. it lists all the files I want to move to archive.

If I use it within 'for', it lists EVERY file and sub-directory ..

for file in `find *.rtn -mtime +60`

I'm sure this is easy !

Maybe something like:
Code:
find /report -maxdepth 1 -mtime +60 -name \*.rtn
see man find for future reference.
