Wanted numbering
5001
5002
5003

I am having trouble figuring out how to use this program. Can someone please give me the proper settings to accomplish this renumbering.
Thanks,
Mike

In this case simply using the "Remove pattern" method with Pattern = 000_ will do the trick for the examples you have provided.

However there are many other ways this can be achieved - some more general than others.

eg a Replace method...

Replace: 000_
with: nothing

or a Script method to extract the two numbers in each filename using a regular expression and adding them together...

match = item.name.match(/(.*)_(.*)/);
return 1*match[1] + 1*match[2];

Reading the User Guide will be a good start!
