Digits in the Batch Names Causing Issues in the MSGFile.dat and Errfile.dat (Doc ID 2126762.1)

Symptoms

Documaker Server logging issue with digits in the batch names after processing, in the MSGfile.dat and Errfile.dat.

All batches are named using a combination of 6 alphanumeric characters, naming convention. The Server logging modules are having a hard time with digits in the batch names defined in the INI files. Digets at the beginning of the batch name are sometimes ignored. For example, if the batch name is 1B0300, the batch name becomes B0300 in the ERRFILE.DAT, appears correctly as 1B0300 in the LOGFILE.DAT and shows a mixture of 1B0300 and B0300 in the MSGFILE.DAT.
And if the batch name is made exclusively of digits, for example:  000000, the batch name becomes " " (blank) in the ERRFILE.DAT, appears correctly as 000000 in the LOGFILE.DAT and shows a mixture of 000000 and " " (blank) in the MSGFILE.DAT.

It appears that Server will sometimes use the name created after the first alpha character is encountered:
- 1B0C00 will show as 1B0C00 and B0C00,
- 110C00 will show as 110C00 and C00, all 3 first character being digits, they are ignored, and,
- 000000 will show as 000000 and blank.
