Problems with Script Step "Save as Copy" to Dropbox

Post

I want to add a simple startup script that saves a copy of my file to a Dropbox folder. I have two steps in my script:

Set Variable and Save a Copy As...

Set Variable: $file
    
    Let ( [
    
    $docPath = Get ( DocumentsPath ) ; 
    $dropPath= Substitute ( $docPath ; "Documents" ; "Dropbox" ) & "BulldogInventory/Backups/";
    
    $name =timeStampHorne & "_" & Get ( FileName ) & ".fmp12" 
    
        //timeStampHorne is a custom function that sets my date formatted 2015-02-19
    
    ] ; 
    
    $dropPath & $name
    
    )


Save a Copy As ["$file";copy]


Everything looks good in the debugger until it tries to save and I get an error saying I don't have permission to save... Error 800

The script works fine trying to save to my Desktop, just not Dropbox and I'm wondering why.

Can someone inform me?
