I have about 3K .pdf documents named to the following filename convention:
the next file in the sequence could be something like
BER_4039464-BER_9384762.pdf (the numbers are nonsequential).
What I need to do is preserve the first part of the filename
BER_0020236, while removing the rest and preserving extension
I thought I could use "rename" from the right-click options, select replace, and then input
-******* with a
blank replacement. This doesn't work - perhaps because finder isn't recognizing * as a wildcard? I can remove
- easily, but not characters after
Is there an extant script somewhere that would do this, or is there something I'm missing from the finder option?
