    I am looking for a way to schedule a task (i.e. batch file using task scheduler) that will open a csv file and replace any instance of "pdf" with "tif". We are converting exported reports from a system as .pdf and converting them to .tif to be imported into a second system. The issue arrises that the csv file refrers to the pdf documents. I need to change all of the references from pdf to tif in the csv file and save the changes made. Any help or direction would be appreciated.
