Hi all,

I have a load of shapefiles, all with one feature in and I want to rename the shapefile with one of the fields from the shapefile.

Does anyone know if this is possible using Python? I have achieved it using model builder (Parse Path) but I am trying to get into learning Python so would like to know if there was a way.
