Batch adding text to email subject lines in Outlook

At our firm, we put file numbers in all communications with our clients. However, we frequently begin dialogues with potential clients before opening a file for them. Then, once they become a client and we open a file, we have to go back and manually change each un-numbered email subject line. It's normally pretty easy to come up with a search term that finds all the emails that need changing, but it's time-consuming to change each one manually. Is there a way to batch insert a string that looks like "[12345]" (without quotes) into the subject lines of all the emails in a search result and/or folder? It's not very important if the string is inserted at the beginning or end of the subject line.
Many thanks in advance,
