I would love some help with the following challenge.

I have a long list of files named in the following order.

File names are numeric and only 4 numbers long. Last number is constant and will always either be a 1,2 or 3. First 3 numbers vary.

1011.x
2012.x
1021.x
5063.x
1072.x
6073.x

My challenge is to rename only the last number to a different set, keeping the first 3 numbers intact.

IE all the number ###3 -> ###2

Any help would be appreciated.

Managed to muster together a solution. Might not have been the best way but created a csv file.
Used ASAP Utilities in Excel to break down the name to the last char. Replaced the number required.
Copied back the first 3 char of the name and merged them back.

Loaded the csv in Advanced Renamer and the rest is history.
Long winded but it got the job done for anyone interested.
