How does 'Create Folder' give its result?

Have you put the command in a 'try' structure?


catch errorVariable   errorStatementsList
   [finally   cleanupStatementsList]
end try

See also:   catch keyword , end try keyword , finally keyword , 
lockErrorDialogs property , throw control structure 

Executes a list of statements, sending any errors to the try 
structure to be handled.

Use the try control structure to execute a series of statements and 
handle any error messages in the catch section, instead of letting 
Revolution display the error window.
