    hi everyone :)
    I was wondering if there is a way, maybe with Automaor to change a file's name with his folder's name.
    for example: lets say I have three folders, named A, B and C. in those folders I have a lots of files which I want to change their names to be like this :
    in folder A it will be A0001.xxx, A0002.xxx ..... in folder B it will be : B0001.xxx B0002.xxx .... and so on and so on.....

    Thanks :)

    Yes, this can be done, in several ways. But it would help if you clarified the situation. Are the files in folder A currently named 0001.xxx, 0002.xxx, ...?
    And all you want to do is to prepend the folder name to each, without changing the names in any other way?
