Thanks to everyone's help. I actually just got a chance to try the fancy way, $$([ClassAd Expr]), suggested by Alan and Dan. However, I got no luck. The whole thing, i.e. $$([*]), is treated literally but not get evaluated. Is there anything that I'm missing?
Here is the script I use:
log = $$([$(Process)+100]).log
But I get a log file called like:
Well, 7 is correctly replaced but not the _expression_. Same story for Dan's suggestion using the String approach. What did I do wrongly? Thanks!

Yes, Condor 7.2.2 is recent enough to use the $$([ ... ]) ClassAd
_expression_ syntax in the way that was suggested.
Here's one way to get 6-digit numbers of equal length with leading zeros:
This produces the sequence
To my surprise, the following somewhat simpler _expression_ did not work:
Arguments = "$$([substr(strcat(""000000"",string($(Process))),-6)])"
It seems that double quotes are not correctly handled inside of $$([ ...
