I am migrating old data into the PDM system. When I fill out the data card it is not auto-populating the metadata for revision within the PDM. This causes an issue with introducing old files into the current workflow. PDM is recognizing these files as a revision of 0 state if 1 = -, 2 = A, 3 = B and so on. Upon initial release, the file is becoming Rev. - instead of continuing from it's current revision. I don't want to manually set the revisions for 20,000 files. Is there a workflow state that I can implement in order to automate the process?  


Here is my current workflow. I have introduced the "DATA MIGRATION" state in order to skip the initial review process as all of these files have been released previously.
