How to update a profile option from a script in P/I Output Manager

The customer is formatting their own variable in PIOE and they want to use that variable in the output file name of the job:

[VARIABLE_RENAME_VALUE] = The desired name of the output file 
[VARIABLE_VALUE1] - Value concatenated to create [VARIABLE_RENAME_VALUE]
[VARIABLE_VALUE2] - Value concatenated to create [VARIABLE_RENAME_VALUE]
[VARIABLE_VALUE3] - Value concatenated to create [VARIABLE_RENAME_VALUE]

1. Format the value for the output file name from other data available within the job:

2.  Add a FORMAT to format the string of the profile option:
<For this example we will say [VARIABLE_RENAME_VALUE]=Hello_World>

3.  Call the PROFILEOPTION to place the option in the modifier:
<This will place the value RENAME=Hello_World into the modifier of the current job>

4.  In your profile, give the output file name a static value plus the job number:

5.  Use a POSTJOBCOMMAND to rename the output file using the RENAME value:
<Notice the output file name and the name in the profile must match the file name of the post job command>

In this example, for PIOM job 1234, the output file created would be OUTPUT_PRE_RENAME_1234.pdf and then would be renamed Hello_World_1234.pdf
