Changing - to .

Hi all, new here, sorry if this kind of thing has been asked. I've never used anything like RegEx, I don't code and stuff, and after trying for a long while to make sense of other posts and guides, I'm completely lost. All i want to do is change the hyphens in a file name to periods.

For example, I have a file name "2017-10-09 02.10.54" and I want to change it to "2017.10.09 02.10.54." How do I do that?

I'm sorry if this is a really dumb question or if I should have found it myself somewhere.

Hi, look at Replace (3), you can replace - with . (it will replace ALL - with .)

Also download the Operations Book at viewtopic.php?f=12&t=4743

It will answer a lot of your questions on using the program.
