    Run an Action only on files in a folder with file names that begin with "PDF"


      I want to run an Adobe Action, on a network folder where copiers save scanned files, to remove PDF/A from files that will have it. I know the files will all begin with "PDF" due to the HP scanner software naming convention. I don't want to run on all files since there are scanned files from multiple machines and only the HP gives us PDF/A. It wouldn't be a big deal to run on all, but the action changes the date file was modified, so it makes all the files appear to have be scanned at the same time, which is confusing when people are used to finding a file by the time it was scanned. I think javascript is the way to go for this, but I may be way off. I'm new.
