I found the answer. Characters for filename must be lower case.See PTC article CS110903.

Thanks for the help, Randy.Hard to believe whatIwas looking for was in the PTC KB. The renaming works in WC, but I am having a problem opening the renamedCADDocs in Pro/E.It downloads to the workspace butgives me the error "<name>cannot be retrieved" in the Pro/E message area. It seems like it's stilllooking for the old name somewhere. I thought I remembered seeing something related to this subject when I was searching through the forum but can't find it now. Anyone know how to fix it?

If the files were in the workspace already you need to select 'Tools'; 'Synchronize' from the embedded browser.
It does a more comprehensive comparison and picks up renames whereas a Workspace Refresh does not.

Were you looking for Java code? I have an external script that can rename from a text file input. I use it for mass renames.

Thanks for the reply Antonio. Since I posted this a few years ago I wrote some code that renames given an input file. I posted it here: https://community.ptc.com/t5/Windchill-Blog/Windchill-Custom-Utility-Examples-Updated/ba-p/483122
