File Splitter output filename

Issue: I am able to split source file in multiple files of 10 rows each but unable to get the required outputfile name. please advise.

Details:
input = A.txt having 44 rows

required output = A_001.txt , A_002.txt and so on. Can below awk be modified to give required result

current status = Below command gives me output file names as A_1, A_2

Code:
awk 'NR%"'"10"'"==1{x="'"${SrcFileName}_"'"++i;}{print > x}' $SrcFileName.txt

why you don't just add 00 there..?

Code:
awk 'NR%"'"10"'"==1{x="'"${SrcFileName}_00"'"++i;}{print > x}' $SrcFileName.txt

# 3  
Hint (or is it not? Smilie):
Code:
awk 'NR%10 == 1{f="x_" sprintf("%03d",++i)}{print > f}' file

Thanks elixir.. hint worked. below is my working command.
Code:
awk 'NR%"'"10"'"==1{x="'"${SrcFileName}_"'" sprintf("%03d",++i) ".txt"}{print > x}' $SrcFileName.txt

@pamu: Hardcoded 00 will add extra zeros if the files are spilleted in more than 9 parts.

thanks all for help

My requirement is extended where the file shud always start with 101 type record. The record count should be less that 10. for any section, 104 type records will not go more than 7

So below command splits the file in records of 10 but is not able to make 101 as first record of splitted file. can someone please extend below command.

Code:
awk 'NR%"'"10"'"==1{x="'"${SrcFileName}_"'" sprintf("%03d",++i) ".txt"}{print > x}' $SrcFileName.txt

Sample source file i.e. A.txt file is
Code:
101|M|28854| 
104|28854| I|
101|M|30854| MER
104|30854| S|
104|30854| C|

Not clear what is your requirement...

Please give sample input with desired output.

1) If First/next 10 lines have more than 7 "104" then what to do?
2) If second file is not starting with 101 then from where/which record we can get 101?
# 7  
The output files required in my example is as below. The requirement is
- Records in each file should not be more than 20
- each file should start with 101 record. This ensures that all associated 101 and 104 are in same file. Hence in example below since count including next set of 101 is going beyond 20, first file is cut at 18. rest of records are pushed to next file and so on.

Code:
A_001.txt
101|M|28854| 
104|28854| I|
101|M|30854| MER
104|30854| S|

104|30856| S|
104|30856| S|
104|30856| C|
104|30856| S|
 
A_002.txt
101|M|30857| 
104|30857| I|
104|30857| S|
104|30857| S|
