Rename 680 Part, Assembly, and Drawings while Keeping References

Question asked by Peter Kennedy on Mar 8, 2017

I know Solidworks Explorer can be used to rename file however we are change our file naming structure and we are currently using a macro in Solidworks and Excel to generate a file name which follows this structure:

 

001-00001

001-00002

011-00001

013-00001

 

We are changing our front category around so all 001, 002, 003 will now all be 001, etc. Is there a macro or way of mass changing all the file names while maintaining references with all the files (assemblies and drawings)?
