Thanks for the reply, but my point is that the 'create folder'
function doesn't appear to me to return anything in 'the result' when
an error occurs: 'the result' just goes on being empty - but the
command does apparently generate an error text because I can see it
in the message box. So I still want to know where this text is put -
the docs don't say **anything** about what happens if this command
encounters an error. I just hope someone knows...
Of course it could be a bug in RR 2.7.0, but to show this we'd have
to know what the expected behaviour really is. BTW I've only seen
this on Windows up to now.
