Hello,

I'm a windows user of Iview Mediapro 3.1.3. Alas, I don't know how to write scripts though I've tried to figure out what I can. I would love some help with the following problem.

My task is to rename many thousands of files based by appending the the contents of each description field to each file name. My description fields contain only the name of the persons depicted.

In an ideal world, I would love to rename all my files according to the following example:

File Name DSC_1234.jpg
Description Field: John Smith
Result: DSC_1234_John_Smith.jpg


If adding in underscores causes undue complications, I can use another application to do that part, but it would mean running the thousands of files through another app.

I appreciate any help. I've looked on the forums and the web, but haven't found something that does precisely this.

Thanks.
