Hello,
is there any .vbs or .bat (double clicking), that would change the extensions of files in a certain folder (C:\Users\Wassim.QA-DOMAIN\Desktop\Orders Invoices)
from .txt to .csv when the file name starts with
116
1023
10052
7351
1645

from .csv to .txt when the file name starts with
451
4645
7714

Sometimes some of the files do not exist.

Any help is appreciated.
Thanks,

Here's a small BAT file that will do the job, just adjust the folder name near the top.

@echo off

REM Define location of files, and prefixes for file names to rename
set BaseDir=c:\ee\ee28280865\files
set txt2csv=116,1023,10052,7351,1645
set csv2txt=451,4645,7714

REM Move to directory where files are
pushd "%BaseDir%"

REM Rename TXT files to CSV
for %%A in (%txt2csv%) do ren "%%A*.txt" "*.csv" >NUL 2>&1

REM Rename CSV files to TXT
for %%A in (%csv2txt%) do ren "%%A*.csv" "*.txt" >NUL 2>&1

REM Return to original directory
popd
