Export DXF gives a different file name depending how you export it?

When Saving a two sheet drawing as a DXF I get the Export options window.

I choose export all sheets to separate files.

The resulting files have 00_ and 01_ before the file name. ( Binary?)


Now when I run task scheduler and choose export to DXF I look at the export options window.

I choose All sheets.

The resulting files have _1 and _2 after the file name. (this makes sense as Sheet1 and Sheet2).


Why the different results?


My VAR said this is the expected result, well It was not expected by me!


I expected a pop up box to tell me the file already exists and do you want to over write it, hmm..... the way Solidworks works when trying to save a file with the same name and extension.


So the question is, who expects it to work the way it does and why does it work this way?
