Hi

I am a loyal user of the software, but this time I need to do something different and I am stuck with this for days and really don´t know how to do it.

I have hundreds of video files named that way:

videofilename657.avi
anothervideofilename6987.avi
onemorevideofilename59.avi

Basically video file name + a secuence of random numbers of 2,3 or 4 digits.

How can I delete these ending random numbers and keep only the original video file name?


Thanks in advance for any tip!

If you do really want to remove EVERY digit from the whole file name,


why not utilize Remove pattern method?
(http://www.advancedrenamer.com/user_guide/metho d_removepattern)


1.) Remove pattern: 1

2.) Remove pattern: 2

...) Remove pattern: ...

9.) Remove pattern: 9

10.) Remove pattern: 0

----------------------------------------------------

Or much better:

If you want to replace more than one pattern, you can separate the different phrases with \

1.) Remove Pattern: 1\2\3\4\5\6\7\8\9\0


----------------------------------------------------

Or more simply:

1.) Remove Pattern: \d

For all the others, who really want to remove every LAST, trailing digits,

from for example

12 Mile Road, 2003 TV-Movie 1234.ext
7 Days to Live, 2000 US,German3456.ext
13 Cold Blooded Eagles, 1992 Hong Kong 1234.ext
Devil At 4 O'Clock124.ext
101 DALMATIANS 234.ext
2 FAST 2 FURIOUS7734.ext
AMERICAN PIE 5 THE NAKED MILE7685.ext


would better utilize the Replace method
(http://www.advancedrenamer.com/user_guide/metho d_replace)

with regular expressions.


Find: ^(.+?)\s?\d*$
Replace: \1
[X] RegEx


Explanation:
^ --- match at begin of string
(.+?) --- one-or-more of any sign, non-greedy, () group for back referencing
\s? --- until a possible blank is found or not
\d* --- none-ore-more digits are found
$ --- found at the very end of the string

\1 --- replace with what is matched into the (...) group
