SPD 2010 Workflow to move item to a folder

I am trying to create an out-of-the-box workflow that moves a document  to a folder (within the same library) based on metadata.  I thought it would be changing the 'path and name' data but i cant seem to get it to work.
Any ideas?

In SharePoint there is no posibility to move an item - only copy and delete. Theoreticaly you would need to use the "copy element" activity to copy the item into the folder and then delete the original one. The problem is that SPD does not alow you to specify a folder in the "copy item" activity, so you either need towrite your own activity that will do it or turn to other workflow solutions from third party (but it will cost you).

SPD is nice for starting with workflows, but you will see that you are going to hit the wall every so often, so sooner or later you will end up with some external workflow designer.
