Plot point location using file name?

Sean BamptonSean Bampton Global Mapper UserPosts: 39Trusted User
I have a series of points I wish to plot and their lat/long is imbedded in the file name like this:

484237N1281839W1830051735.

The last 10 digits are yymmddtttt and do not need to be plotted.

Is there a method within GM or a script that can be written to plot this filename and have the point NAME as the filename?

    I would format like this:
    Replace `N1` with `N,1` and `W1` with `W,1` 
    You can open this as csv and delete the third column and than import to GM

    It's preferable to not have to edit the file name (there are 1200 individual files).

    The file name is 484237N1281839W1830051735.BTS and I would like to drag the file onto the GM work area and have it plotted (with the file name as the point name), or write a script that will import the file names as points with a single click to let the script run.
