patgenn123 Posted November 20, 2006 Report Share Posted November 20, 2006 I have files I would like to rename using Variable Set from File. I am choosing "Get File Date/Time" with the month/day/Year as Variables N1, N2 and N3. I have a program that strips attachments from my Outlook Inbox and puts them in a folder. The names of the files in this folder are similarly named. For example, 2nd Mortgage Rate Sheet.pdf 2nd Mortgage Rate Sheet-1.pdf 2nd Mortgage Rate Sheet-2.pdf I know I can use wildcards to rename them to something like this: 2nd Mortgage Rates N1-N2-N3.pdf(where N1,N2 and n3 is the date of the original file) Variable Set From File Date/Time Rename File or Files: " 2nd Mortgage Rates*.pdf" <VFFILE:0:0:T:1:T:2:T:3:F:1:F:1:F:1:C:\My Cabinets\Pat G\Inbox\Broker 2nd Mortgage Rate Sheet*.pdf><DOFILE:06:NN:C:\My Cabinets\Pat G\Inbox\2nd Mortgage Rate Sheet*.pdf>C:\My Cabinets\Pat G\Inbox\2nd Mortgage Rates*N1-N2-N3.pdf> I am really confused as to why this is not working.
