Morning.
I was wondering if its possible to rename a bunch of pdf files that reside all in the same folder ?

Currently the files are just named like,
1.pdf
2.pdf
3.pdf

All the files have a date modified next to them for viewing purposes.

Can we run a macro that will rename these files & get the dat information from the date modified part,

So 1.pdf would then change the 1_15_07_2019
Where 1.pdf is the original file name and the 15_07_2019 is the date modified info

Thanks

What is the full path to the folder in question? Right click on a file, properties then copy the location.
