Generate EBF File Names that Contain only numbers.

Do not use a period (.) or dash (-) in the file name because it is not compatible with EBF file management.

Ideally, GLAARG would like the file name to be the 4-digit session number, followed by the 8 character date and a zero, for example 999052620200. The leading 4 digits will make it easy for us to identify a session's file and track any anomalies back to the session. The final zero will allow us to change it to 1, 2, 3, etc., if we have to resubmit the file or a portion of the file.

Certain special characters truncate the file name, which is appended to the URL when doing a search on the FCC's EBF user interface. For example, https://ulsbatch.fcc.gov/ebf/cgi-bin/viewrsp.cgi?rsp=F5167_05.rsp was truncated after the 05 because it was followed by a period and the rest of the date.
