Hi,

We have about 2,000 files consisting of Word and Adobe documents Saved As 'AO blah blah blah.doc' (the character O) when they should have been Saved As 'A0 blah blah blah.doc' (the number zero).

Is there a way to do a mass Find and Replace on part of a file name?

Thanks.

Thanks for the sharp response but none of these programs can do what I am asking.

I need to replace just a single part (AO to A0) on all filenames.

Not within the file, and its not the extension to a file.

I think that's exactly what I need, but I don't particularly want to pay for the program.

I thought it should be quite an easy task?
