File Renaming?
« on: March 22, 2007, 05:46:12 PM »
Kirk,
Using 4.4.3.3 I want to rename a file using part of the current filename {file} (but just the last 4 charcters) before the extension?
Thanks
Joe

Kirk - I did some more searching and found this answer to a prefious question form 8/06 "We don't have any substring extraction, though I have been thinking of adding such capability for some time now."

Was that sill accurate on 4.4.3.3 and is it still on 4.5?

Thanks
Joe

Yes, substring extraction made it into PM 4.5.

What is the string to get just the last four characters of a filename for the filename - not including the ext.?
Thanks
