I want to rename multiple files in W98. Can I please get recommendations for a reliable freeware or shareware utility?

I have a series of Word files, all in a common folder, named:

"ABC variable.doc"

I want to change them to:

"AB same-variable-as-before.doc"

(Going to a DOS prompt through Windows didn't work. I tried "ren ABC* AB*" and got no change. Well, I did get a change -- it changed the case and gave me abC at the beginning of each filename instead of ABC. It didn't get rid of the C as I wanted.)

I rarely have need for this but a shareware utility may be worth getting if the price is reasonable. Reliability and ensuring the stability and security of my business system is of paramount importance, though, which is why I'm asking for recommendations here for what should be a rather simple task in theory. I'm very security- and stability-conscious!

Thanks!

JK

I have a (freeware) utility called "Lupas Rename" that works quite well for batch renaming. The only problem is that I've forgotten where I found it, and the help file lists no URL. Try doing a Google search to find it...
