I try unsuccessfully to obtain the following operation

Original file name pattern : wwwwxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxYYYYYzzz
in which the number of characters xxxxxxx is undetermined.
The final file name should be : wwwwYYYYYxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxzzz whatever the number of "x"
I tried the move method, check Backwards, Move from 4, Move count 5, then I would need to refer to the Destination as 5th character from beginning.

Is it possible without writing a script that I am not skilled enough to perform ?
Thanks for your help

Use the Replace method with a Regular Expression...

Replace: ^(.{4})(.*)(.{5})(.{3})$
With: \1\3\2\4
Use regular expressions

and: www.advancedrenamer.com/user_guide/regular_expresions
