Thank you James, Richard, Alex, and Bob for your replies.

As it turns out, James' suggestion was a good one and version 6 of "A
Better Finder Rename" does indeed to appear to do what I want.
In connection with Public Space's <> companion
folder utility, I can do it all without writing a line of code.

It would have been a nice exercise in Livecode programming but  I need to
use my time towards the other things I need to do...
Comparing what I charge for my time VS the hours the Public Space person
put into his code.... the fees are miniscule..
