Example:
abc ERP abc ERP.pdf

Target:
If an string "ERP" occures a 2nd time, then delete it.


This PF help doku examples works ony, if the doubled string is directly behind each other.

(\b\w+)\s+\1 is a regex that detects double words in a string.
For example, it would match 'the the ' in the string 'Paris in the the spring'

Thanks,
Stefan

Copy the following into the renaming creator (do not include the single quotes):

Row: 1
Search: '(.*?)(ERP)(.*?)(ERP)(.*)'
Replace: '\1\2\3\5'

Hope that helps.

Peter.
