I have a problem and the only cure is more scripting experience!
I need to change a large number of files' (roughly 1000) names. I need to keep intact the names they already have, only changing the numeric value that is part of their file name. Here is an example of what I am talking about:
AB 001 CD.file
AB 002 EF.file
AB 003 GH.file
What I need to do is change the numeric value of these files without affecting the third portion of the file name (CD, EF, GH, et al). From the example above to this:
AB 100 CD.file
AB 101 EF.file
AB 102 GH.file
This has proven to be very tricky, as I have found no script nor program capable of doing such a thing. If anyone with scripting experience on the Mac could help with this, I would be most appreciative.
