Copying a string of characters and moving it to another spot

Postby Crispy93 » Sat Feb 10, 2024 8:21 pm

Hi there!
I have a bunch of files named like this "ALL-PRAEXXX_PCAP_2022_31.12.2022_PRAE - Capital account al 31.12.2022" where "XXX" stands for different numbers (001, 002, 003 and so on). I'd like to copy those three digits after the second "PRAE" at the end of the name so it would end up looking like this "ALL-PRAEXXX_PCAP_2022_31.12.2022_PRAEXXX - Capital account al 31.12.2022". I've been trying to figure it out but I've discoverd BRU only recently.
Any kind soul in here that can help me? Thank you!

Use Regex (1)
Enable Simple flag

Match: ALL-PRAE%1_%2 - %3
Replace: ALL-PRAE%1_%2%1 - %3
