|I am trying to rename a series of files using the command prompt.|
The original file names are STBL-EN000.jpg through to STBL-EN099.jpg
I want to rename them thus:
Big_STBL_EN000.jpg through to Big_STBL_EN099.JPG
I have made several attempts using wild cards but have only managed to get to:
Big_STBL_02.jpg through to Big_STBL_99.jpg
I seem to have lost the EN0 part of the file name
To do that I did it in a two stage process
ren STBL-*.* ren STBL_*.*
ren STBL*.* Big_STBL*.*
That changed (for example) STBL_EN038.jpg to Big_STBL38.jpg i.e it didn't work!
I know this sounds really geeky but it is driving me nuts as I know I managed to do this in DOS about 6 years ago.
I think it is related to wild cards and possibly the 8.3 limitations but as my original name was > 8 characters it might be a red herring.
Cna anyone help
