Using Import Export too to rename files

I have a large number of file that need to be renamed

Original Format = SC-SZ-1234

New Format = SC-NW-1234

How do I use the import/export tool to do this and where can I find a step by step tutorial

  • This can be done with PW E/I, but I doubt you'll find any kind of a tutorial.

    Export files

    Rename exported files (so the import process finds them)

    Update the spreadsheet to reflect the new names and field values (such as name and potentially others)

    Import
    Enable update files

    I'd recommend having a single test file to practice with.  PW E/I is very particular, and the last thing you want is to get an error in the middle of a large process.
