[SOLVED] Help with filename parts move

Postby gereqi » Sat Apr 01, 2017 9:23 pm

Hello to all

I am a newbie, found this great utility a long time ago and have been using it to rename mostly files by just appending numbers or random text.
Now I must change a lot of file names from

AAA-BBB-CCC.EXT

to

BBB-AAA-CCC.EXT

I tried many regexp expressions without any result. The dash is the delimiter in the filename, so I must swap places of first part with second part in the file name, split by dash symbol.

Any help please ?

Thanks

This will do what you want.

RegEx (1)
Match: ([^-]*)-([^-]*)-([^-]*)
Replace: \2-\1-\3
