Hi Experts,

I'm looking to create a VBA function that will accept a file name as a string parameter, then rename a file as follows.
if parameter is "Skilled_Nursing_Visit_Note" then will look at given folder for file starting with that name for example "Skilled_Nursing_Visit_Note_2018-Nov-26_1901.csv"
and rename that file to just "Skilled_Nursing_Visit_Note.csv", in other words, remove the date/time and sequence timestamp from that file name.
