Sorry I have another question:
We also use fractions in our pricing point of sale: 1/3 off and 1/2 price. I know that you definitely can’t use backslashes in filenames so my thought was to use a GREP style in InDesign to change 1/3 to the word Third and 1/2 to the word Half. I am new to GREP but I did this and saved it as the name Half, see attached.

Then I used In my custom code in extract pages but the filename still comes out as 12 off, this is the full code I’m using to create the filename, using paragraph and character styles:

This is the result:
10090468 00347366 10090465 Made In England diffuser 12 price A4 A5

I was hoping it was going to say:
10090468 00347366 10090465 Made In England diffuser Half price A4 A5

Have I misunderstood how this works? or what am I doing wrong?
