Mac file path issue

This should be simple but I'm fairly new with FMP and hitting a wall when trying to create a script that exports a file to a network location from a Mac.  I had it working fine when the Mac was the only system involved.  However, we've added a couple of staff members who are both using Windows 10 PCs, so I moved the main Filemaker instance to a Windows computer in our server room and have it shared from there.  The scripts I've created that automatically export csv files to a specific location on our server work fine from the two PCs.  However, the Mac throws up an error: "filename" could not be created on this disk.  I've tried a variety of things related to path names with no luck including a single relative path for both PC and Mac and a specific filemac path.  Perhaps I'm entering the path incorrectly?

 

According to the Terminal window, my file destination from the Mac is: 

//backoffice.imc.mu.edu/Tech Services/Inventory/Label Printing CSV/barcode2.xlsx

 

My database is located at:

//backoffice.imc.mu.edu/Tech Services/Inventory/FMP_Marquette Inventory.fmp12

 

The Windows 10 systems are working fine with:

filewin://backoffice.imc.mu.edu/Tech Services/Inventory/Label Printing CSV/barcode2.xlsx

 

What should I be using on the Mac side to get the file path to work?

 

Thanks.
