PDM tasks not writing variables to file name correctly

I'm trying to set up the PDM 2018 task to convert SLDDRW to PDF and SLDPRT to STEP via workflow transitions. However, the tasks are not filling in the description field of the file name correctly.

I want the output file name to be PARTNAME-CONFIG-REVISION, DESCRIPTION ie: "Part1-00-A, Base Plate"

As you can see from the attachment, instead I am getting "Part1-00-A, %Description%". What is causing the "%...%" ?

As for the STEP files I'm getting no description at all, ie: "Part1-00-A, .step"


Has anyone run into this problem before?
