rename to next


Recommended Posts

I'm sure this is simple, but I'm new to this product.

 

I have a file named something like blank.wav

I need to have that file copied and pasted and named blank1.wav.

then if I need another copy later I would like it named blank2.wav

 

So basically I just need to copy, paste, and rename to next iteration.

 

thanks for any help you can provide.

You should check out the file manipulation commands in MEP instead of copy and paste in Windows Explorer. It's slightly more technical for a newb but it can save a lot of problems.

 

But if you just want to manually rename and have MEP increment a name I suggest using the registry or INI file. I would start be seeding it with number 1 and on each subsequent execution read that into a text variable, convert it to integer, increment, convert to text, write back to INI or registry and finally use that integer as text to rename the file.

How would you decide which files to copy? Would you decide that yourself? Would you select the file(s) with which you want to do this yourself? Where would you want the copies to be placed? Into the same directory? Is the directory path fixed, or will it vary?

 

Knowing this would make it easier to decide which is the most efficient solution to your question.
