    Your loop is wrong:
    Do While i>10
       some code

    Loop looks ok to me, or sort of anyway. The while part probably should be on the Do rather than the loop so that it does not execute it a>f on the first pass
    It assigns a starting value to f and to a before the loop
    A is incremented inside the loop
    loop condition is while a<f which at some point would be false and end the loop assuming of course a number is actually entered in the input box for f otherwise it could run forever

    That said if the goal is to rename some files that is not the way to go about it.
    You may want to look into the FSO and how to use it to rename a file and forget about using SendKeys
    Always use [code][/code] tags when posting code.
