    Applying variable data with duplicate values?

    tlambiam

      I've been asked to take some product images and apply a part number text overlay to the image and am using variable data sets to automate the process.

       

      One part can have, multiple images, and its proving to give me problems when exporting the final assets.

       

      When I export the assets, I setup the file to be named with the "data set name", and "data set number" but Photoshop is disregarding the duplicate variable (in this case the part number) and apply a generic "Data Set" value to the filename instead. So if I have two images of Part# 1234, the variable is correctly applied to both images, but on filename is only correct on one of the images.

       

      Is there anyway to setup my dataset so that it does not overwrite duplicated values?
