I need to find some files in a directory and rename them.  I would like to use a wildcard.  How can this be accomplished using VBA Code?

Here is an example of the filename that needs to be renamed:

  ALL_RC_20070226064133_Query 1 with ELGDISHP.txt

Here is an example of how I would like the file renamed:

  ALL_RC.txt

Thanks,
