Remove only first character from file name

asked on May 24, 2018

Hi there,


I'm still very new to Workflow and pattern matching and I have been tasked with removing the first character of the filenames of 315 documents within a folder.  

I guess I'm having trouble with figuring out how to split that character out so I can put the remainder of the filename in a token.  The filenames look something like this: xSR_A_G_Park Ave 606.pdf

I just want to get rid of the pesky 'x' at the beginning of the file names.  Can someone help?

If you already have the file names stored in a token and you know that the names are always follow the convention you just mentioned, the regex below should work:


This is saying: grab everything after the first word character.
