See John's excellent posting at http://www.ztw3.com/forum/forum_entry.php?id=3920

Keeping a printout of this handy has helped me out many times.

> Hi there,

> I have a bunch of files I want to rename like this:

> from:

> a.txt
> b.txt
> c.txt
> d.txt

> to:

> filea.txt
> fileb.txt
> filec.txt
> filed.txt

> Now I would have thought that this would just be rename files to file*.txt but
> that renames the first file to file.txt and then complains that the file exists
> when renaming the second file.

> In DOS if I type:

> ren *.txt file*.txt

> I get the same problem. I'm using windows 98 SE and ZTW 1.48kd

> Any ideas on *any* way that I can do this?

> Regards

> OgO
