I figured.

I think that would be wise just in case if you want to use a fixed width
for the number.

Our problem is we aren't far enough into the process to know yet, and when
we did it originally, we didn't have numbered documents.

I don't mind having to adjust the metadata in the event I have to renumber.

Should I fill out a new ticket to request the two digit numbering or can
you take care of that?

Yes, we did that originally, that's nothing new.
