Rename part of the file name in a folder

I need help, i want a windows script, maybe  a notepad to be saved with .vbs or .bat that can do the following

prompt me to choose the desired folder and once i chose folder then ask me the string to find in file names in this specified folder and once found that string as part of the file names then another inputbox to ask me what do i want to replace is with.

for example, i have many files in a folder with name   Product1 - Copy.doc and Product34 - Copy.doc and so on, i want to replace all of the "- Copy" part with " Original"

any help is appreciated.

i also can accept the Excel VBA if can do what i have explained above.

Get all the file names into the Excel file, find/replace, then run the macro to change the names.

No need to invent a script for this, there are far too many freeware utilities to allow mass renaming.  Here are a  few in my toolbox, I am sure one or more will work for you:
