Hello everybody,

I would like some help to create a regular expression that could rename more than 2000 files I have.
I tried to find it on the forum but I couldn't find an expression that worked.

So I have files with the following structures:

Fornecedor - 2013-03-28 - Chaveiro Chavassi - NF 341.pdf
Fornecedor - 2020-09-12 - Assessoria VOIP - NF 1444 Reparo Cameras.pdf
Fornecedor - 2020-10-15 - AG Brasil - NF 10869.pdf
Fornecedor - 2014-07-17 - Rio Branco Papéis - NF 256195 - Entrega.pdf
Fornecedor - 2014-05-21 - Rio Branco Papéis - NF 249638 - Faturamento.pdf
Fornecedor - 2014-02-13 - Chaveiro Avulso - NF 357.pdf
Fornecedor - 2014-07-17 - Passalaqua Papéis - NF 256195 - Entrega.pdf
Fornecedor - 2014-07-17 - Guajajaras - NF 256195.pdf

I want to be able to move the date to before the text " - NF".
So they end up like this:

Fornecedor - Chaveiro Chavassi - 2013-03-28 - NF 341.pdf
Fornecedor - Assessoria VOIP - 2020-09-12 - NF 1444 Reparo Cameras.pdf
Fornecedor - AG Brasil - 2020-10-15 - NF 10869.pdf
Fornecedor - Rio Branco Papéis - 2014-07-17 - NF 256195 - Entrega.pdf
Fornecedor - Rio Branco Papéis - 2014-05-21 - NF 249638 - Faturamento.pdf
Fornecedor - Chaveiro Avulso - 2014-02-13 - NF 357.pdf
Fornecedor - Passalaqua Papéis - 2014-07-17 - NF 256195 - Entrega.pdf
Fornecedor - Guajajaras - 2014-07-17 - NF 256195.pdf

I've several options but I have no luck.

Any suggestions, Can anyone help me with this difficulty?
Thanks in advance!
