I just downloaded this great software from www.download.com. I have to say thanks for the great program, it makes rrenaming files soooooooo much easier.

I have a question though. I have played around with it a read the help files and the forums here too and I can't seem to figure this out. It might not be possible......

I am a DJ and have around 15,000 mp3 files I am re-organizing. I have some formatted as Artist - Album - Track Number - Song.mp3 (spaces between the dashes). Others formatted as Artist-Song.mp3. (no spaces). Is there a way to get all the songs formatted the same with spaces between the dashes as in the first example? Any thoughts? Thanks, Billy

Just paste the following info into the search/replace columns of the custom list (don't inlcude the single quotes):

Row: 1
Search: '-'
Replace: ' - '
Row: 2
Search:
Replace: '*Delete All Extra Whitespace in*All*'

The first row ensures you have all dashes surrounded by blanks.
The second row eliminates any resulting extraneous blanks.

Let me know if you have any problems.

Peter.
