Any ideas on how to rename multiple file names within a FrameMaker 8.0 book?

The book includes perhaps 20 or 30 separate files, all are consistently named
(SRC550 - System Functions, SRC550 - Operation, etc.).

We need to change all the files to SRC860.

I've already Googled every which way using different keywords, etc., with no
good results.

By the way, I tried highlighting all names in the book (within FrameMaker), then
right-clicking to get "Rename file", but it just picks the first file for the
rename process and then stops after that one is done.
