Hello all. I've never used Automator before, but someone directed me towards it. As part of my job, I need to take a bunch of files that are sequentially numbered (ex: 0000.txt, 0001.txt, 0002.txt, 0003.txt, etc.) and need to rename them with a very different sequence. The sequence I need is nearly always: 000-001.txt 002-003.txt 004-005.txt 006-007.txt 008-009.txt 010-011.txt, etc. I would like the renaming to initiate with 000-001, going up until it runs out of files. Even if it makes it as far as 998-999. Right now, I don't think Automator can do this, but if it can, I'd love to learn how. I've literally changed hundreds of thousands (probably millions by now) of filenames manually and could use a break. If anyone has an easy solution that does not use Automator, that's fine too. But I have zero experience running scripts, etc., so if it involves any of that, I might need basic help learning how to run them. Thanks so much in advance! -- O P.S. -- It's my very first time posting here. My apologies if I missed something or otherwise did something wrong.
