How to create folder from concatenated fields

I am using Filemaker Pro Advanced 14. I have a script to create a folder (Windows) . The "directory" field is auto entered data. The "folder name" field is a text calculation of the "last name" and the "address". The button creates the folder the the street name of the address is omitted. The folder name shows the correct concatenation of last name and address but the folder isn't created properly. I would appreciate any guidance as I am completely stumped.

Example:

directory: D:\Dropbox\_Transactions\

last name: Smith

address:  500 Main Street

folder name: Smith - 500 Main Street

folder created: Smith-500

 

My sample file is attached.
