Hi,

My plan is as follows:

The files:

AAA.abc
AAA [CO].bca
AAA [BG].cab

BBBB.abc
BBBB [CO].bca
BBBB [BG].cab

...

Should be moved to the folders
AAA
BBBB
...

I believe that I need a function in the folder-generation syntax to generate foldernames from filenames minus "[XX]". It would be very kind if you could help me out here.

Thanks in advance,

-Bernhard-

Advanced Renamer can help you. But first we have to establish the pattern to use for the folder name. Is it always the first 3 characters? Or is it all the characters up to the first space? Or something different?
Some of the tags that are good to use are <Word>, <SubStr>, and <RSubStr>. But let me know more about the pattern and I will try to help you.
