Keep part of the file name

Postby ronyshawkat » Wed Jun 14, 2017 11:21 am


I have some files which looks like this

F_Personal_UP_Job_102_Balustrade_Balustrade Model_100617_Library_Balustrade_PlotFiles_Prototypes_Single Part_TP401-V22-BP2 A3 Advance Steel
F_Personal_UP_Job_102_Balustrade_Balustrade Model_100617_Library_Balustrade_PlotFiles_Prototypes_Single Part_TP401-V22-p2 A3 Advance Steel

I just want to keep the Bolded parts of the file name and want them to look like this


Is it possible to do?

Try this.

RegEx (1)
Match: _(\w*-\w*-\w*).*$
Replace: \1
