Hi,

I need to append a .xml extension to all the files in a folder.
I tried using "ren" but that just changes the file extension.

The files in the folder are all of the format 21345678_ordrsp.000123
Using ren would change that to 21345678_ordrsp.xml, whereas I want 21345678_ordrsp.000123.xml

If you use

rename *.* *.*.xml  then it will rename xxx.txt to xxx.txt.xml  which is OK if that is what you want.

rename *.* *.xml will replace the extension with .xml
