Additional Question Regarding an Image Pointer in the xml Output

I am starting this thread to build on Jason's previous question. 

Our customer actually needs their Export(rather than Import) directory path in their xml file. I can manually build this path in the expression mentioned in the previous thread and I can name the file by the content name. An issue occurs however, when there are two "like" content types in the same batch. The "Name Uniquely" feature in Document Export takes care of the image naming problem but the xml file does not reflect this as this field is populated at extraction.

I say all this to give some background, but the customer has said that they don't care what the file name is as long as it is unique. I tried using the Guid but I can't seem to be able to find the correct item to place into the expression to return the guid. Is there a keyword or variable that remains unique(sequence number or DOCID) can be used by the expression and Document Export?

    Use Folder.Id in your Default Value Expression. When performing Document Export and configuring your folder/file mappings, there is also a variable you can map directly to for Node.Id. This also pulls i the GUID of the exported document.

    I tried Folder.ID this weekend. It does give me the Guid but(unless I am doing something wrong) I can't build the entire export path as the "+" symbol is not allowed with the Folder.ID expression. I tried this expression and got an error on save: "C:\Export\"+ Folder.ID

    Error: Operator '+' is not defined for types String and System.Guid. 

    Is the expression I am trying incorrect?

    Add .ToString to the end of that, then you should be able to add in the rest of what you need:

    Folder.Id.ToString + "12345"
