    Trying to use GREP to truncate names in certain words..

      Hello,

       

      I am trying to find a way in GREP to select all the text strings that looks like this:

       

      12345678wieawoejfoiaw.jpg

      65434546wieawoejfoiaw.jpg

      23542398wieawoejfoiaw.jpg

      90989098wieawoejfoiaw.jpg

      23234567wieawoejfoiaw.jpg

      24326743wieawoejfoiaw.jpg

       

      and leave (replace) it with just the first 8 numbers in each found string.

       

      I remember doing something similar awhile back, where I break the type in parts (like digits or amount of characters and then go and get them back for the replace part, but I am drawing a blank...)

       

      Any of my GREP friends around?
