Hello,

I have files with time stamp called
ADDRESS_20200518021511.csv
ADDRESS_20200519040826.csv
ADDRESS_20200520025041.csv

I would like to rename them in chronological order so that the oldest file gets number 1 added to the file name, and the newest gets number 3.

I would look like:
ADDRESS_20200518021511.csv renamed to ADDRESS_1.csv
ADDRESS_20200519040826.csv renamed to ADDRESS_2.csv
ADDRESS_20200520025041.csv renamed to ADDRESS_3.csv

Can VC do it?

Thanks!
