I’m trying to create a script to take file names that come in to us with a date on them and rename them without the date, however use the date from the original names and create a folder out of them.
Original Names: Name_20131115
Renames to: Name
Creates folder based on the “20131115” portion of the original name, so: Folder 20131115.
I only want it to take the date portion of the original filename to use as the folder… I’ve tried a few things but without success, here is the script so far;
rename-item -Force File_*************.ear -NewName “File.ear”
***'s are wildcards so that it picks up any dates and doesn’t need to prompt user to specify the date as a variable.
Hope someone can help! Thank you.
