use the RENAME command. use the * symbol to represent all things before/after or both.

I am using autocad 2005
An xref has been binded and exploded in a drawing with many layers.
How can i rename my layers to take out the "carriageway construction$0$" for each layer.
I have run a search and found routines to add text but not delete part of nayer names.
Hi Tannar thanks for getting back so quickly.
I have tried rename to rename them individually but cannot work out how to do it for all the layers simultaneously.
On the "Old Name" line type this: carriageway construction$0$cc*
on the "Rename" line type this: CC-*
Now, all layers will start with CC-
will that work for you? i don't know if you can just take it out using that command. some else maybe?
i'm not sure if this works, but when you bind the xref a dialog box comes to chose between bind and insert. chose insert instead
