Looking for a method to replace Acronyms with their proper syntax

I was wondering if there is a simple way to change characters separated by spaces like so

O M A C to O.M.A.C.
S H I E L D to S.H.I.E.L.D.

As well as other similar patterns where acronyms are used. I'm thinking I would use a replace method but I don't know the syntax to write it in. It would be ideal if I could use one method to replace all such instances regardless of what the acronym is.

Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

You mean a rule like:

find one upper case followed by a space
and change to that upper case char but exchange the space by a period?

But you should provide complete file names first to get the right solution from us.

You can try Replace Method (http://www.advancedrenamer.com/user_guide/metho d_replace)

FIND: "([A-Z]) "
Replace: "$1."

but depending on your file names this may work well or not, or partly only.

If this tool had saved you time, perhaps you want to donate an Dollar to Kim?
