I want to keep a folder counter (and not a global counter) for autonumbering the files.

I want to use the following file naming convention:
YYYY\MM\YYYY-MM-DD\YYYYMMDD_####.jpg

The numbering (####) should start with 0001 in each folder and increment by 1 for each new file.
When I copy files for a second time to the same folder, the numbering should start with the highest number already in the folder incremented by one.

For example, when I copy files for the first time, the filenames should be 20070330_0001 ... 20070330_0005
When I copy some other files to the same folder some other time, the filenames should be 20070330_0006 ... 20070330_00xx.

Any ideas how to do this without manually setting the global counter each time?
Maybe something for a future version of RoboImport.

Thanks for the post. Unfortunatelly current version of RoboImport doesn't provide autocorrecting global counter otherwise as manulally setting up.

Another solution for this problem is using another naming scheme (take a look at Selecting the Best File Naming Scheme RoboImport help page:
