      Applescript to create a folder

      Post

           Hi

           I have a working script to automatically create a folder that is named after the field content of a record.
           I need help with two aspects. Firstly, I want to change the folder that myfile is saved in - (I want to add a subfolder)

           Secondly, I shall be running the database from FM server located on a new mac mini server. This folder, mentioned above will therefore need a new path that points to the server . How do I write this path?

            

            
           MY CURRENT SCRIPT
           --tell application "FileMaker Pro Advanced"
           set folder_name to cell "Name_ShortReversed"  of current record
           --end tell
            
           set Doc_path to Documents
            
           tell application "Finder"
           try
           make new folder at "Users:myname:Desktop:Enquiries:" with properties {name:folder_name}
           end try
           end tell
            
           I want the folder structure to be altered to this:Users:myname:Documents:Enquiries
            
           Not sure how to implement this due to the Set DT to desktop line..
           And to alter the path to the server - If I right click the file on the server, from my client, I get this:
           afp://Server._afpovertcp._tcp.local/Users/mycompany/Documents
