Hi,

I'm looking to build a bat files that will rename all the files in a select folder with the extension *.OUT to *.MON

My task is to take all the data files given to me. Search for any files with a .OUT extension and rename that file to a .MON extension. I'm sure this can be scripted I just don't know how.

Thank you,
