Lightroom file renaming in sequence, but using letters, not numbers

In the "Filename Template Editor", there are several sequencing options with numbers. However, I couldn't find an option to sequence with letters instead (A,B,C). I looked for an option where I could make a template with "custom text" and then sequencing with letters. But unfortunately it doesn't exist

In LR "Doesn't exist".  Agreed- I have never seen in any LR tutorials/videos/books/articles, etc.

If you have exported files (not in the catalog) and want to rename outside of LR, then there are programs that can do that. I have long had a version of {Lupas Rename} that will sequence A B C D...X Y Z AA BB CC DD ...
