in thread I cannot create backup copy during file name change

Hi ww ;

My files are named as below:

someText_oldname_someText.pdf

, and I wanted to change them to something as below:

someText_newname_someText.pdf

My intention was to change the text between underscores (_ _), but not touch the rest of the file name.

Thanks.

      I meant  glob "*.pdf"
