RS - Subscription Incrementing Filename Limitations?

Hi Experts!

This is for MS Reporting Service.

In REport Services for a report that has a subscription in the 'Overwrite options' as
"Increment file names as newer versions are added".

Is there a limitation?
We're experiencing an issue where it stop naming the new report at 1722. So, it will overwrite the latest report. Say we have report named 'ThisReport.pdf'. So, when RS creates a report it will increment by adding '1'. So, we have ThisReport1.pdf --> ThisReport1722.pdf

Now it will just create ThisReport.pdf and when a new report is created it will overwrite ThisReport.pdf.

Nothing has changed to the subscription.

Any ideas?

I believe it's hardcoded into application itself. You can try to add @timestamp parameter to your report name and set Overwrite options to do not overwrite.
