The string I am using is the correct one in explorer but does not work with this "Copy to File share: method. It is formatted like this:
I assume it is the dot . character.
anyone have a suggestion on how I could format this to resolve when using it in the workflow method?
Dave - I tested this on a path like this: \\foo\bar\test.test.foo.bar\foo\bar\foo.bar but it worked properly. So a "." in the folder names is not a problem. But there might be a difference having a "." in the server name instead of a folder name. Can you test this on another path in your environment that does not have a "." in the server name? I would do the same test, but I don't have a server available with that naming convention.
I'll send info to our IT folks and see if they can find a server without the dots.
our naming convention also as ''09.v01. in the server name. other than that I can't see any other odd characters but I don't know how Nintex evaluates for them. I wouldn't think number values would mess things up.
thanks for having a look at this, btw.
I would imagine that "." anywhere should be fine, what would you do for an IP? ex \\192.168.0.1:8080\folderA\folderB\...
illegal characters would be special characters (@, #, %, etc) ...if anything its the "\". maybe they need to be escaped?
