I have an assembly containing 500+ parts, the file names of these parts are no longer relevant, i want to Pack and go, but instead of using the select / replace command, as the old part names are obscure, so would have to search each one individually, i want to give new sequential part numbers to all the files. i want to rename the new files 1,2,3,4,5....... i will then re-pack and go, to add the companies naming convention to the start of the file name.

OLD FILE NAMES

xy-xyyx-xy-09

yx-yxyxy-yy-02

yy-xxxyyyy-xx-02

 

REQUIRED NEW FILE NAMES

xx-yyyy-01

xx-yyyy-02

xx-yyyy-03

xx-yyyy-04

xx-yyyy-05
