in reply to Transforming File Name Characters

What happens if, upon getting ready to rename a file or folder, the new name already exists? For example:

Old New --- --- file@{%.txt file___.txt file%{@.txt file___.txt

    Thanks I had NOT thought of that. I'm sure that the second rename will just fail and leave the file name unchanged. I'll display a message to look for it. Thank You For this "got-cha" :-)
