Dear all,

last year (in november) I asked for file renaming and got answers from 'David Lee'.

Now I lost all my *.aren-files and try to build them new.

The filename
'Emmy Werner & Daniel Wisser _ E411'
should turn to
'E411 - Emmy Werner & Daniel Wisser'.

As David stated I tried the following, but it doesn't work properly:

Use the Replace method...

Text to be replaced: (.*) (.*)$
Replace with: \2 - \1
Use regular expressions: √

What am I doing wrong?

Kind regards

Kurt

Your Regex is breaking the filename at the last space - you need to specify " _ " instead of " ".

(.*) _ (.*)$ will do the trick.
