Export to PDF and Create Folder Structure


     Hello everyone,

     I am attempting to create a database that will be able to export information to a PDF and email it to a client. I want to save these PDFs in a folder structure like this :

     Parent Folder / Last Name, First Name / Date_comment.pdf

     I set up a variable with a folder structure named $Path and using that variable with the Save Records as PDF script step. The problem I am having is that Filemaker gives me an error when I want it to create a Subfolder with the clients first/last name : "filename could not be created on this disk.  Use a different name, make more room on the disk, unlock it or use a different disk."

     Is there any way to get filemaker to create a folder to sort records?
