Hi

I have multiple files that are created in a directory called c:\cogtest which are:-

Network Detail Report - Burst-en-gb-xxx.pdf
Network Detail Report - Burst-en-gb.xyz.pdf
and so on...

I need to strip out the 'Network Detail Report - Burst-en-gb' in all the files that it generates, leaving the filename.pdf part only

e.g.

xxx.pdf
xyz.pdf

and so on...

Thanks
