    I need to rename a file at runtime. Does an equivalent exist for the Name statement of Visual Basic like Name oldpathname As newpathname?

    I Dont think there a direct way of doing that, but you can do it in steps..

    Create a copy of the file and then delete the old file...

    Thanks Cableguy,

    Indeed, that is a solution; however, the file is pretty long and than it takes quite some time to make a copy. So, a direct rename is preferable.

    Hi Harry,

    if you are not aware of installing another tool on your ppc you could use the freeware Mortscript (
    as an enhancement of the shell command of Basic4ppc.

    As I remember a direkt rename of files is available.
