Exporting Global Container Field To Windows Network Drive

Hi All,

 

I wrote a script that creates a set of folders on a network drive on one of our file servers.

 

Now I have template documents stored in global container fields in my database, and once the folders are created on the network drive I would like to place these template documents into specific folders.

 

Figured it would be easy enough to create a variable $documentPath with the following calculation:

 

"filewin://FS1/Commercial/DanTestFolder/" & $account & "/" & $project & "/ProjectManagement/Budget/Budget Template Master.xlsx"

 

I put this variable into the export field contents, and when the script runs I don't receive any error but when I go into the directory it doesn't have the spreadsheet as I expected.

 

I've tried using the network drive letter name (filewin:/T:/) and that didn't work either so I tried the network path... I'm stumped.
