Sending multiple files via scp


I have this code that sends one file to a folder:

scp -p report1.xlsx username@hostname://export/home/exg85/reports

But let's say I have 2 more reports(report2.xlsx, report3.xlsx).

Instead of calling the scp command three separate times, is there a way I can send all three files in one scp command WITHOUT using wildcards?

Keep in mind you can do multiples in the opposite way as well,. as a download.

Downloading multiple files with scp:

Code:
scp root@192.168.100.1:"file1 file2" /root/Downloads/
