windows batch file rename

21

I have some file such as AAA_a001.jpg, BBB_a002.jpg, CCC_a003.jpg in Windows 7 and I'm trying to use batch to rename these file to a001_AAA.jpg, a002_BBB.jpg, a003_CCC.jpg.

Just to swap the content between _.

I have been searching for a while, but still don't know how to do this. Can anyone help? Thanks.

The Best Answer is

@echo off
pushd "pathToYourFolder" || exit /b
for /f "eol=: delims=" %%F in ('dir /b /a-d *_*.jpg') do (
  for /f "tokens=1* eol=_ delims=_" %%A in ("%%~nF") do ren "%%F" "%%~nB_%%A%%~xF"
)
popd

Note: The name is split at the first occurrence of _. If a file is named "part1_part2_part3.jpg", then it will be renamed to "part2_part3_part1.jpg"

Use REN Command

Ren is for rename

ren ( where the file is located ) ( the new name )

example

ren C:\Users\&username%\Desktop\aaa.txt bbb.txt

it will change aaa.txt to bbb.txt

Your code will be :

ren (file located)AAA_a001.jpg a001.AAA.jpg

ren (file located)BBB_a002.jpg a002.BBB.jpg

ren (file located)CCC_a003.jpg a003.CCC.jpg

and so on

IT WILL NOT WORK IF THERE IS SPACES!

Hope it helps :D
