File rename doesn't add leading zeros to renaming files sequence? And a pat on the back to the LR de

First of all, LR truly rocks. Any Adobe folk reading this, please take this note as a massive pat on the back for your team. There's a lot of childish and naive negativity from people posting in this forum. And I suspect from folk who are not really your key market for this app. I feed my kids by running a photography business and have been shooting digital since the early 90s...ya know...
LR will be looked at as a massive sea change in the development of digital photography. The first time the entire workflow process is truly viable from end to end. What will make LR the ultimate winner in it's field is simply the integration with Photoshop. Aperture, Capture One etc cannot ever beat LR regarding this and so, just like the way that Excel and Word and Powerpoint all work together and everyone uses them, LR will inevitably become the de facto standard way of managing RAW images for pro photographers.
Even with the few bugs (specifically file movingon Mac OS10.4.9) LR has shaved HOURS off our workflow. We shoot around 250 gigs of images a month in our weddings and event business. Now all of our editors use LR. No more Capture One etc for us.
Here's the question - There seems to be no way to add leading zeros to a file rename command. So if you rename a batch of images they appear as 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12 etc so now when I look at them in Bridge or other apps, they are now sorted 1,10,11, etc
Now let me tell ya this is a pain.
Any comments or comfort that is is a known issue would be appreciated. All we want is a way to have the rename add the leading zeros like most other apps do...
Best to all
William Henshall
PS By the way, I am a HARD *** about shoddy unstable software sold to pro photographers as the "prefect solution" that doesnt work as advertised...I am that guy that the tech support guys at certain companies dread. Yep, I simply expect an app to do what it says, just like the car I buy. I once resorted to sending the CEO of a certain software company an invoice for my time restarting, reinstalling the OS and bug finding another similar app. You can image, I got a personal call...heh...

<br />
<br />I just changed a folder of 85 images' names, and typed in 001 as my starting number. While no zeroes were prepended, the pix show up in order both in the Finder and in Bridge CS3.
<br />
<br />Say a bit more about file moving on your Macs.....

  • Leading zeros in CSV file.

    Hi Team,
    I need to retain leading zeros in CSV file.
    I could eliminate this problem in XLS file by using this tag in the RTF Template:
    <fo:bidi-override direction="ltr" unicode-bidi="bidi-override"><?XML_ELEMENT?></fo:bidi-override>.
    So, when i do an Export from Publisher for excel document its gives me correct values. i.e zeros are retained.
    But when i select "CSV" and then hit Export , it gets saved in txt file and the txt file has the zeros.
    but when i rename it to ".csv" and open it does not retain zeros.
    Can you please let us know how can we achieve this.
    Thanks for help!
    Bhupendra Gupta

    Hi Bhupendra,
    If its a number the leading zeros will be eliminated in CS in the default CSV .can't do much on this.
    But if use the delimiter e-text and get the output file, you can get the leading zeros as needed..

  • Leading zeros in rename photos

    When renaming a group of images it would be great if (as in Bridge) Lightroom would put in the leading zeros. I found it a pain to have to put in the extra zeros (using windows explorer) so they would appear in the correct order - even in bridge.

    Hi Lee & Ian,
    But this is for importing images.
    After importing and editing I now want to rename the keepers. I've edited 500 files down to 385 and want to sequentially rename the keepers.
    From the help file;
    Numbering Specifies a text string using an import number based on how many photos have been imported into the library, sequence number, or image sequence number. (This element is only available in the Filename Template Editor, when importing or auto-importing photos, and in the Text Template Editor, when creating slideshows, printing photos, or creating web photo galleries.)
    Or am I missing something????

  • Add leading zero to matnr in a conversion program

    Hi All,
    When uploading matnr from a text legacy file , should i add leading zeroes to the sku value. For ex the data from the lagacy is 1000123456 (10 digits length). The values are always numbers. The matnr in SAP is 18 chars. Should my program transform it into 000000001000123456 before saving it into mara-matnr?
    Regards, Oli

    Are you sure that in configuration, the Indicator for lexicographical material numbers is unchecked?  If it checked, then SAP will not then the all numeric material numbers will not get leading zeros by default.   =====>
    Indicator for lexicographical material numbers
    Defines the way numeric material numbers are stored in the database.
    It is only possible to set or reset (cancel) this indicator if no numeric material numbers have been used yet in the system since they would no longer be interpretable after setting or resetting this indicator.
    If this indicator is not set, numeric material numbers are padded with leading zeros and stored right-justified

  • How to add leading zero using the toString() function?

    I've looked in the user manual and I can't find any reference to toString() for syntax information.  Isn't there a parameter for me to use to specify the string lenght?  And whether to add leading zeros or not?
    Here's the code I need to add leading zeros:
    playbutt.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, playSound);
    function playSound(e:Event)
    var num:Number = Math.ceil(Math.random()*43);
    bigNum.text = num.toString();
    var path:String = "Track No" + bigNum.text + ".mp3";
    var s:Sound = new Sound(new URLRequest(path));;
    The files I'm trying to open starts at "Track No01".
    Any ideas?

    Thank you for the code replacement.
    By the way, instead of having the user click a button to start a random music file (MP3), I'd like to get the music going as soon as one loads a webpage and once the first tune is finished playing jump to another randomly selected music file (MP3).
    I've search via Google for ideas but couldn't find anything that came close to what I need done.
    Any ideas?

  • BADI to add leading zero to material in DP

    I wanted to check if there is a BADI that can be used while generating CVC (/sapapo/mc62) that will add leading zeros to the product number (9amatnr) while uploading CVCs from FLAT FILE.

    I am basically trying to create CVC from a TAB delimited file using tcode /sapapo/mc62. The file will be loaded on Application server and  /sapapo/mc62 will pick up the tab delimited file in background. I want a FM or BADI that can pad leading zero in front of the material Characteristics when CVCs are generated.
    Please advise.
    I am not planning to load the file into infocube and generate CVC from infocube.

  • When i open a new document, my "width" and "lenght" add two zeros automatically to file size??? For example basic A4 size in mm is 210 00mm x 297 00mm? And i can´t do nothing about it! Why on earth?

    This "error note" must have something to do about it?

    You may try the list.
    The following is a general list of things you may try when the issue is not in a specific file (you may have tried/done some of them already); 1) and 2) are the easy ones for temporary strangenesses, and 3) and 4) are specifically aimed at possibly corrupt preferences); 5) is a list in itself, and 6) is the last resort.
    If possible/applicable, you should save curent artwork first, of course.
    1) Close down Illy and open again;
    2) Restart the computer (you may do that up to 3 times);
    3) Close down Illy and press Ctrl+Alt+Shift/Cmd+Option+Shift during startup (easy but irreversible);
    4) Move the folder (follow the link with that name) with Illy closed (more tedious but also more thorough and reversible);
    5) Look through and try out the relevant among the Other options (follow the link with that name, Item 7) is a list of usual suspects among other applications that may disturb and confuse Illy, Item 15) applies to CC, CS6, and maybe CS5);
    Even more seriously, you may:
    6) Uninstall, run the Cleaner Tool (if you have CS3/CS4/CS5/CS6/CC), and reinstall.

  • Product ID doesn't have leading zeros

    In the table CRMD_SRV_REFOBJ, some of the product ID has leading zeros and some of the product doesn't have leading zeros. Any idea why it is happening like that?

    Please check it the products base table COMM_PRODUCT. If you find similar set of values, then issue could be with programs creating Product IDs.
    Usually Products flows from ECC, also possiblility to be created in CRM too.  So, the check the Badi  impli CRM_EQUI_LOAD for flow from ECC.
    Hope this helps.

  • Add leading zero's function

    can anyone tell me what is the java function for add leading zero's in xi mapping.

    Hi Zevik,
    As other threads mentioned used FormatNum and double click and put Zeros. Like if the lenght is 10 then put 10 zeros. Here one thing you should analyse is, if your input value has a string value it will fail in FormatNum becuase it expects only the numeric value.
    So if you dont know whether your input has numeric or alphanumeric then go to UDF. So create a udf with name AddZeros and as Value with one argument as input.
    Imports:  java.*;
    Then add this code:
    int len=input.length();
    for(int i=0; i<10-len;i++)
    return input;
    Here I am assuming the total length is 10. If yours is 20 then put 20 instead of 10 in the second line of the code.

  • How to add leading zeros to a characteristic in CT04

    The business is requesting that we change a class characteristic so that it adds leading zeros.  Currently the characteristic is set as numeric with length of 6, no decimals.  Is there any way via template or otherwise to force this characteristic to store leading zeros, as recorded against the characteristic?

    Hi David,
    1. If you are mentioning about the "Characteristics"This is Standard Field name.
    2. You will not be able to influence the same,
    3. Also i doubt if you are talking about the Characteristic Value - Since only in the Char Value we will be able to define the length, etc.
    4. In case of Charvalues if you want leading zeros then create it as character , where you can store with leading zero

  • How to add leading zeros to a packed variable

    Hi all,
    I have a to add leading zeros for a packed field.
    Data : brgew like mara-brgew.
    brgew = '12.063'.
    but I have to display the field as '0000000000012.063'.
    How can we achieve this?

    Execute the code .

    brgew = '12.063'.
    data:val(18) type c,
         in(13) type n ,
         dec(6) type c.
    data :  a type i ,
            b type i.
            a = TRUNC( brgew ).
            write:/ a .
    in = a.
    write:/ in.
            dec = frac( brgew ).
            write:/ dec.
            concatenate in  dec+2(4) into val separated by '.'.
            write:/ val.

  • Preserve leading zeros in CSV file.

    I am creating a file on the fly and attaching with email.
    emp_no starts with 0001,0002,0003 ...etc.
    When file write emp_no to csv file...i looses leading
    zeros...what is best solution to preserve zeros?.
    In excel file creation, i am using
    style="mso-number-format:0000;" to preserve leading zeros.
    But by using cffile, i am not able to use style.....Is there
    any other way to preserve leading zeros?
    <cffile action="write" file="#dirname#/emp_mon.csv"
    output="List of Employees" addnewline="Yes">
    <cfoutput query="emp_q">
    <cffile action="append" file="#dirname#/#filename#"
    output="#emp_no#,#e_name#,#e_address#,#sal#" addnewline="Yes">

    I'd suspect your CSV is fine, ie. if you open it in WordPad
    or NotePad you will see 0002. The problem is with whatever you're
    importing it into. Excel? If something else I don't know. If Excel,
    your Import spec, saved or on-the-fly needs to say Text on that
    field rather than the default General which simply means make a
    number (zero-suppressed) whenever possible. Single or Double quotes
    (on each field that needs it) are a workaround provided you specify
    them as "Text Qualifier", but you don't seem to want to do that, so
    Text is the only other method.

  • How to add leading zeros to kunnr field

    Hi All,
    I need to add leading zeros to KUNNR field runtime.
    i.e for some customer it is displaying '2001084606'
    some customer's it si displaying '10434'.
    I want add leading zeros when customer length is
    not equal to ten '10'.
    plz kind let me know this is urgent.

    Hi there,,
    Kunnr is using a dataelement with Char 10.
    You can do in this fashion to resolve your issue.
    len = strlen (itab-kunnr).
    len is having the lenght of the customer number.
    if len < 10..
       while len < 10.
          concatenate '0'  itab-kunnr into temp_text.
          add 1 to len.
    now finally you can assign temp_text to your itab-kunnr.
    hope this way you can resolve your issue.
