Move Files does not accept variable in Target directory

Post by mEMR » 14 Apr 2013 21:20

In Action Move Files, I entered the following properties, expecting to move one or more files (123*) into a variable subdirectory, as follows:
Source Files: /storage/sdcard0/123* -- file 12345 exists
Target: /storage/sdcard0/{sdestination}/ -- {sdestination} has value ABC, and subdirectory pre-exists

Bad Result: the file is renamed to '{sdestination}'.

I have verified that there are legitimate values for {sdestination} before and after the Move Files Action is executed.

You are correct, variables in the target field of action Move Files are not replaced.
This will be fixed in the next update.

Thanks for reporting.
