A simple rename/copy
Jan 11th, 2018 at 2:02am
Hello Gert, I hope all is great with you.  This is so simple I have to be staring at the problem and looking right through it.  All I want to do is have any file put in a specific directory to have 3 letters inserted at the beginning of the filename, and two letters added at the end of he filename.  If I do new process, select copy files, select dynamic naming and enter this as the dynamic name:

so 123.jpg would become ADV_123_EN.jpg
But it won't let me advance to NEXT.  The word NEXT is greyed out.

What am I missing here, apologies this is so simple.
