Renaming Files

Hi There,

 

I am nearing completion of an R&D project of about 50-75 parts.  During this preliminary phase, I named the files fairly logically - as it relates to my project.  However, once complete, we upload our parts into PDM Works and use a specific naming convention, such as: FP400_HYDR_LUBE_TANK (and so on).

 

So my question is:  Can I go through and rename these files within SolidWorks so that I dont lose my references?  I could just rename the files one by one in Windows, but then I have to locate the part through solidworks and it would take a long time. (although this is how we do it currently).

 

Recap:

 

- Project has 75 files in assembly (and subassemblies)

- Need to change ALL of the names of the files

 

Thanks!
