filename after scanning has the correct month but the wrong day

Dec 20, 2010 11:45 PM

is there a way to change the default settings and or correct the date/name of a scanned document. The file name of the scanned document reflects the scan profile plus the military)...minute...second. The day is incorrect. What can be done to correct this. The computer time is correct.

I have tried two separate scanners with the same results. thanks

    Can you explain the exact steps you are using to create the PDF?

    This is NOT RESOLVED and is a BUG (is there a better place to post a bug?). I will explain the issue and how to duplicate it.


    Adobe Acrobat X Pro 10.0.1




    When scanning to PDF via an action the file name is incorrectly generated one day ahead of the current.


    Example: A file scanned in today (03/01/11) shows the following filename:




    The file name structure breaks down like this:


    (Scans=name of action used to generate scan)_(2011=year)(3=month)(2=INCORRECT DATE / current date +1)(201258=20hrs 12min 58sec)




    Here the EXACT steps I used to create this issue:


    File > Create > PDF from Scanner > Configure Presets


    Options > Select my scanner


    Presets: Autodetect Color Mode


    Optimize Scanned PDF checked (probably not important to issue replication)


    Make Searchable checked (probably not important to issue replication)




    File > Action Wizard > Create New Action


    Starts with: A Scanned Document > Autodetect Color Mode


    No Steps


    Save to: A folder on my computer


    Options box to the right of Save To selection (set to default settings)


    Keep original file names checked


    Save File(s) as Adobe PDFs checked


    Overwrite existing files checked


    Saved action as 'Scans'


    File > Action Wizard > 'Scans'


    File scans and opens with filename incorrect
