    Default Script required please to rename multiple files

    afternoon,

    Im having to rename multiple files and so far its going to be a long while before completed.
    Im currently have to use this process in Dreamweaver

    Find Audi001
    Rename to AUDI-001

    This is the same process for other makes of vehicles.

    so after the first is done i then do
    Find Audi002
    Rename to AUDI-002

    Is there a script we can write to save me hours of work please.

    Hi there theremotedr,

    I am confused.

    Why do you have to or want to change
    your file names in this way?

    Your site is working OK, isn't it?

    The other day we changed some text to LEXUS-004

    Today i remembered that in the coding which some populates a link in my email it was written like so

    Lexus 004

    And also

    LEXUS 004


    Thus chucking up broken links etc


    So all after noon ive been changing it so ir all now is written like so

    LEXUS-004



    No all i have to do is Honda and im finished

    Is there a code we can use ?

    Honda being the biggest hence leaving it to last.
    Here is some info to assist you.

    The files start at 001 and finish at 059

    So the filenames in use are like so Honda001 and also like HONDA006

    BOTH need to be renamed like HONDA-001 and HONDA-006

    Thanks if you can assist

    But these links may be of assistance to you.

    Sorry that I cannot be more helpful than this.
