    I'm new to this form and new to working with automator and have a complicated task to perform, at least for me.

    I want to take folders labeled:


    then rename the 08jan03 folder to read 08jan04,
    the 08jan02 folder to read 08jan03
    the 08jan01 folder to read 08jan02

    This is just a short example I would like to do it with up to 10 files at a time.

    It is probably a easy task to perform but my brain hurts just thinking about it.
    thanks for any help.

    I am not an automator expert (I have tried but just didn't stick)
    for all your renaming needs I can recommend a freeware called renamer4mac
