counting file name

Posted: 12-08-2008, 04:57 PM
Hello,
i need to know if there is an easy way (or help with a difficult way) to
count how many times a partial filename appears in a folder. for example:
in today's folder I have 45 pdf's. I need to know how many of them contain
"- 1 -" as part of the filename.
Can anyone help?
thank you!

hmm well not sure this is what you want, but you could use a command prompt
navigate to the directory and do a

DIR *1*

should have a file count at the bottom of the list.

that help?
