Trying to consolidate all files in a path to a single parent folder

I am totally brand new to this and so far i have just been trying a basic ‘for each’ function to move the files in a single folder into another folder, hoping to evolve it to batch process all the folders in a parent folder, but as of yet my efforts have resulted in the folder being moved as well, and so my first question is : how do i move the contents of a folder without moving the folder? any suggestions leading towards my overall objective greatly appreciated as well. much thanks for any help.

Hey Ninjai,

Please be more specific about your desired process.

You want to manage a specific folder?

A folder selected in the Finder?

The frontmost open Folder in the Finder?

You want to move the files to what folder where?

Best Regards,
