Repacing Text in Filename Thu Jan 24, 2019 3:12 am • by nobsi
Hi,

I have different files in a folder, e.g.:

this_is_a_file_with_underscore_6.22.pdf
test_file_e_322.11.pdf

I want to replace:
1.) all "_" with " "
2.) The last value "6.22" -> "6,22" or "322.11" -> "322,11"

Do you have any hints for me how to achieve that?

Best Regards,
Richard

You can try using the replace text function. Not sure if you want to replace all periods with commas, but if you want to make sure to only replace ones in numbers, you'd have to use a match pattern. You can match the part before and after the dot and store those in custom attributes. In a Rename action, you can then recombine them but with a comma instead.
