Add text Before a File Name


Author Message
donaldsc I am trying to add text before an existing file name. For example, I have a bunch of files with specific descriptions of the photos - "place name.jpg".

I want to add a general description of the text before the existing text to the file name reads "trip description place name.jpg".

To be more specific, my current file names are
"Black Flye_1.jpg",
"My Paddle.jpg" etc.

I want them to read
"Boat School Black Flye_1.jpg" and
"Boat School My Paddle.jpg".

Replace will not work because all the files have different names.

Any ideas?

Hi,
you can use the "Rename" feature of FileMonkey to append text to file names. There is a basic tutorial available here:

Be sure and use the latest version. If you are a registered user, select the Help/Update menu item from the main window.

Regards,
monkeyjob.
