How to create a random file name

Is there a way to create a random file name in Boomi?  I was hoping there might be a numeric function like "random" that I could concatenate with some other characters to make a unique random file name, but so far I can't see any way to do it...  

 

I have a process that creates temporary files for processing and it currently uses an invoice number to keep it unique.  The problem is sometimes the invoice has "/" or "*" in it which causes UNIX to barf... 

 

Anyway, help would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks!
