Is there a way for me to remove all trailing numbers except for some that I specify
I know how to remove all the trailing numbers that's easy enough but there are many instances where I would want trailing numbers to be ignored
Ford Shelby GT500 I would want to not have the 500 removed
As some examples
Also dates I would like to be ignored years specifically but also there are some instances where I would like 2017-04-25 to be ignored for example
I don't know how to specify to remove all trailing number except....

So does this mean there's no way to do what I'm trying to do?

Are you able to give som examples of the full filename of both files where you want to number to removed and some where you don't want it removed?

All of the examples above are examples of instances where I want to preserve the trailing numbers.
Basically I want ALL trailing numbers to be removed EXCEPT instances I specifically specify such as the examples above.
I've downloaded a large collection of photos from the web using a bulk image downloader and as you may know the names are complete rubbish. So I want to clean them up including removing all the trailing numbers which is often 20 or 30 random numbers. BUT there are of course instances where I do not want to remove the numbers such as those above and dates such as the year for example.
I would want to fix this filename
001 Hennessey Venom GT25466452564623215646
I would want to remove both the leading and the trailing numbers in this case and thousands of others very similar that have a core name I want to retain and get rid of the rest of the crap.
BTW thanks so much for responding this is something I could really use in a lot more instances than the examples I've provided above.
While I'm chatting with the site administrator could I suggest adding a notification function to your site so that when someone responds to your post you get an email so you know it happened.
Also there's not really a practical way of finding your own posts once you've posted them they kind of get lost in a loooooong list of posts and it can take quite a while to find your own post if you can find it at all. It would be VERY helpful if when you post a question or an answer for somebody it shows up in your profile under "My Activity" for example. I have posts I've made in the past and didn't really think about it and they're completely lost to me now. Mr Excel has a useful function like this so you can find the threads you're currently involved in.
Just a suggestion.
