Img08292017_007.pdf
Img08292017_008.pdf

Using fixed 602172400
and numbering by 1 increase
as suffix
when I get to
image08292017_0010.pdf

it adds an extra 0
Instead of 602172410.pdf

I get 60217240010.pdf
:roll: :roll:

If I'm understanding correctly you need to put 6021724 into "Name (2)" then suffix the number with a pad of 2.

You seem to be wanting to increase the last 2 digits of 602172400, but what you're doing is adding digits onto the end of 602172400.

Leave the last 2 digits off 602172400 so making it 6021724 then add the extra digits onto the end.

Thinking about this some more, I don't know how many files you want to rename like this but if it's more than 99 you may want to leave off the last 3 digits making the fixed number 602172, then start the suffix numbering at 400 (Start: 400), if you do that you can leave the pad at 0.

Thank you so much!!
I usually am not re-naming more than 15, at one pass.
But I do it repeatedly, so this has been a huge time saver for me
But with your help, it has become an even greater utility and time saver for me.
thank you soooooooooooooooo much!! :D :D
