Copy Tree in EPDM and Serial Regeneration

I'm trying to use the Copy Tree function in EPDM to copy some assemblies & parts with their drawings. We have a variable 'DocNumber' which consists of several other variables: "Customer"-"Document Type"-"Serial"


Eg. ABC-01-00001


We use this as our drawing number. When I'm using the copy tree function and tick the box 'regenerate serial in datacards' the serial regenerates on the card but the serial within the 'DocNumber' does not. The 'DocNumber' variable has the 'Default Overwrites' checked.


I would like to know if anyone knows how to get the serial number to push through to the 'DocNumber' variable because if we attempt to copy files they all end up with the same drawing number.
