    Saving to a new folder

    Sirgalt

      I've spent hours trying to figure this out, and no Google search I've tried has solved my problem.

       

      I want to create a script that prompts a user for a company name and then creates a new folder, with that exact same company name, and saves the file, also with that company name, within that folder.

       

      Here's what I have so far:

       

      var companyname = prompt("Please enter the company name", "");

      var filename = companyname+".indd";

      var foldername = companyname;

      var myfolder = new Folder("/DriveLetter/Folder/2015/"+foldername); 

      myfolder.create();

      app.activeDocument.save();

       

      This successfully creates a new folder in the "2015" folder, but the file saves in my personal directory.

       

      Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!
