:) Event Name is a field that one can enter in the Import Module, hence only rename rules in the Import Module can use %EventName which maps to the value that you enter in the Import Module.

If you want to use the event name as currently written in the metadata then use the that metadata field; that would typically be %xmp:Iptc4xmpExt:Event

yes, I took the rename, I thought that goes there too. Too bad that is not the case.
For me are after a holiday, all the pictures in a folder, from there I lwollte on the rename (as in the import), the selected pictures in individual days / topics move instead of these individually create and move manually.

Thank you for your help :wink:
