    Default Macro to rename numerous files

    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
    I have learning difficulties so please be patient if i'm slow on the uptake,Thanks Very Much...

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