Hi @2coms

and then create the folder by using create folder activity

Hi,

There might be the following character or linebreak in your string.
\/:*?"<>|

You can check it at local panel in debug mode. Please set break point at this activity, and run debug.
If there is above special character or linebreak, you can use the following expression for remove them and concatenate path string.

System.IO.Path.Combine("E:\Drive", System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Replace(Candidate_id.toString,"[\\/:*?""<>|`]|\r|\n",""))
