Some documents do not have the "Document Creation Date" metadata set in the PDF.  If the "Document Creation Date" metadata is empty, a "-" character is substituted in the renamed file.


You can view the PDF metadata fields by opening the PDF in Adobe Acrobat Reader DC and viewing the "Document Properties" under the "File" menu.
