vFromFileName: Name of the file that is to be renamed. The file is renamed by changing the last character of its name to a hyphen. Function returns False if vFromFileName is Null or cannot be fixed-up to a String.
Note: If vFromFileName already ends with a hyphen, then the file name is not changed.
Return Value: Function returns True if the file was successfully renamed. Function returns False if the argument cannot be fixed-up or if there is an error renaming the file.
v1.2 BugFix: Changed the argument type from String to Variant to be more consistent with the other functions in this Class.
