I am having some trouble with renaming a file. File available is called RESULT_0001405712_Success20180205-082429-710.txt

The expected result is to rename the file RESULT_1405712_Success20180205-082429-710.txt

I will have to rename files daily.

My code for the step that renames the file is
<AMFILESYSTEM ACTIVITY="rename" AM_ERRORS="28033" AM_ERROREXCLUDE="YES" SOURCE="\\automatetest\d$\Inetpub\ftproot\Internal\Medline\RESULT_0001405712*.*" DEST="\\automatetest\d$\Inetpub\ftproot\Internal\Medline\DM\RESULT_1405712*.*" OVERWRITE="YES" ISNEWER="YES" />

The file name after the step has ran ends up being

You can see that the leading zeros have been removed in the first group of numbers, but 712 was added on.

Thanks for looking at this conundrum.
