Hi VivianLea,

I can't say why that is happening, but from a migration and digital naming convention perspective, the periods are problematic, and can cause file corruption to digital files.

Good afternoon all,

I had previously posted the request below and never received any answers, so I thought I’d try again.

Earlier this year, I was doing some test imports into v2.8.1, specifically the accessions module.  The raw data is coming in from a CSV file and the two parts of the accession #/identifier are in two separate fields.  During the import, it put a “ – “ rather than a period between the numbers.  Is there any way to change that?  I detest using dashes in accession numbers and so would REALLY like to put a period in there so that the electronic record matches the labelling on my file folders.

Any thoughts about how to change this?

Many thanks!
