Folder Number Formatting
Posted by Scott Friend on 11 May 2010 12:18 AM

The format of Folders can be specified. The users will then be required to enter a folder number that matches the format.

In Digital Workplace:

When you go to Tools, Options, Asset Folder, Types and hover the mouse over the Format line a small window will come up with the following line

  • 0 = required digit
  • 9 = digit or space optional
  • L = required letter
  • ? = optional letter
  • a = optional alpha-numeric
  • A = required alpha-numeric
  • > = convert all letters to uppercase
Here is a short explanation of each formatting character:

0 = required digit
At that place in the name a number must be entered.

L = required letter
At that place in the name a letter must be entered.

? = optional letter
At that place in the name a letter may be entered but is not required.

a = required alphanumeric
At that place in the name a letter or number is required.


A = optional alphanumeric
At that place in the name a letter or a number may be entered but is not required.

> = convert all letters to uppercase; AdamsWeb: all letters are forced to uppercase
After the greater than character all letters entered will be capitalized automatically. Typically this will be at the beginning of the format since all letters will be capitalized once the acquire occurs.

In addition, you need to be aware of these things.
 
  • If an underscore is entered for a position in the name, that place will be blank no matter how the position is formatted.
  • If you put in any numbers one through eight they will automatically appear in the Asset Folder Name.
  • If you put in a C it will allow that position to be any character.
  • If you put in the capital form of any other letter, that letter will automatically appear in the Asset Folder Name.
  • If you put in the lowercase form of any letter other than "a" it will automatically appear in the Asset Folder Name.

Example: >00-L000

  • This format would capitalize all letters entered.
  • The first two characters would have to be numbers.
  • The next character would be a dash.
  • The next character would have to be a letter.
  • The last three characters would have to be numbers.
