Please post the first row of 2 or 3 files and the expected result.

You can rename files with ?file.rename. This function is vectorized its 
on arguments so you do not need a loop, only the source and destination 
filenames. Both vectors should have the same length, if not strange 
things will occur including data loss.

Hope this helps,
