    I'm making my first forays into Automator and I'm trying to get it to create sequential folders. I would like it to create folders named "volume 01", "volume 02 etc" a set number of times. So I can have folders for volumes 1-10 for example.

    I can create and rename folders sequentially but I can't figure out how to create multiple folders and THEN rename them sequentially.

    Any help would be much appreciated. Automator seems like a powerful tool, I'm going to have to practice...

    wellweird how me and you are trying to do the same thing. I basically asked it to make a folder then i looped it to reproduce the 43 folders i wanted. Then i got it to take those 43 folders and rename them sequentially

    All worked fine
