_SP_ -> Rename - >> fileSP.TXT
_FX_ -> Rename - >> fileFX.txt

and other file that does not contain these words rename them:

## Compramos los ficheros y los movemos.
ls *_FX_* | awk '{system("mv " $0 " " sprintf("userbjbfx%02d", ++i))}'
ls *_SP_* | awk '{system("mv " $0 " " sprintf("userbjbsp%02d", ++i))}'

Is this working for you?

Can you code tags?

I currently solved temporarily. But I do not like the solution I have now.

LOGFILE="/tmp/var/log/BJB/BJBmove"$(date +%Y_%m)".log"
i='let i=1'


i=`ls $DIRRENOMBRADOBJB | wc -l`

echo "$(date)  $*: Recibido: $fichero --> Renombrado: $FILEOUT$i.txt ($MD5SUM)" >> $LOGFILE

for compfile in $FICHEROSCOMP

    if [[ ! -r "$DIRRENOMBRADOBJB$compfile" || ! -r "$DIRRENOMBRADOBJB$fichero" ]]
    echo "El fichero $compfile existe" >> $NULL

while true

valor=$(ps aux | grep root | grep -v grep | grep -i sshd | grep BJBuser)

# comprobamos si hay una conexion sftp del usuario BJBuser
if [ ! "$valor" ]
#        echo "No hay conexion del usuario: $SERVICE por sftp"
        for fichero in $FICHEROS
                if [ ! -f $DIRRECIBIDOBJB$fichero ]   # Comprueba que existe
                        echo "$FICHEROS no exite." >> $NULL
                sleep 2    
                        continue        # Seguimos
            sleep 2
                let "i+=1"
            if [ -f $DIRRENOMBRADOBJB$FILEOUT$i.txt ]    
                    echo "$DIRRENOMBRADOBJB$FILEOUT$i.txt existe" >> $NULL
                ls $DIRRECIBIDOBJB*_FX_* | awk '{system("mv " $0 " " sprintf(".toMUTUACTIVOS/userbjbfx%02d.txt", ++i))}'
                ls $DIRRECIBIDOBJB*_SP_* | awk '{system("mv " $0 " " sprintf(".toMUTUACTIVOS/userbjbsp%02d.txt", ++i))}'
                mv $DIRRECIBIDOBJB$fichero $DIRRENOMBRADOBJB$FILEOUT$i.txt
                MD5SUM=`md5sum $DIRRENOMBRADOBJB$FILEOUT$i.txt`
                chown BJBuser $LOGFILE >> $NULL

        echo "El servicio $SERVICE esta levantado" >> $NULL

exit 0


I would like to improve.

When you rename a file containing _FX_ destination is overwritten if it exists and does not want to.

Sorry for my English, it helps me a google translator :-)
