Automation Blocks - Renaming Correct Clip

Hi Team.

The below script looks for any selected items with the word "2mix" in the file name and imports a new copy of that item. It then adds "_DM" to the name of the original item.

 

I want it to add "_DM" to the newly imported version of the item, but I can't figure out how.
Any ideas...

If you have two items with exactly the same name in exactly the same bin, Automation Blocks will always use the first one it finds - I think this is always the older one, but not 100% sure.
I think the best solution would be to create some temp bin, then
- import the new item in the temp bin
- rename the item inside the temp bin
- move the item into the target bin
