Picture numbering in a K200d

By default the K200d is set up to save pictures in folders by the date you take the picture. Its starts with IMGP001 and the next day it starts with IMGP001 again. If you change it to save in folder Pentax then it starts with IMGP001 and then keeps adding to it. It never starts over again. Isn't there anyway to get the folders with date to save with a different number every time rather than starting over again?
This really causes problems when you are talking photos from a number of folders and putting them into one, you have to rename them.

are you sure?
i've got my k200d set to save files into date folders, and it uses incrementing filenames no matter the date
check the memory setting in the first menu, there is a "file no." option that is probably unchecked

I do not own a K200d, but on my K20d the file numbering defaults to a new number, sequentially. I imagine the K200d is similar.

In the menu, in the Rec Mode, scroll down until you get to "memory." When you get into memory, scroll down until you get to file number. Turning this "on" will enable sequential numbering (I believe this is the default). If you shut it "off" you will return to the system you are currently using for file numbers.

Best Regards,

Thanks for all the answers for what ever reason the file box wasn't checked and it's working fine now.
