DriveWorksExpress Drawing name rule not working as expected

according to the help file, if I use the rule:

 

 

="*" & DrawingNumber & "-000"

 

where DrawingNumber is a number input by user in the form,

 

I should get a drawing saved as DrawingNumber-000

 

I'm not. I still get the source file name, with the above appended. IE:

 

[base file name]DrawingNumber-000

 

I've tried every permutation I can think of, nothing works right. ="" & DrawingNumber & "-000" also fails.

 

Screenshots of actual settings attached. You can see that the model is named correctly, but the drawing still has the source model name. Not sure where I can drive the naming of the drawing itself?
