Sharepoint Document Review library folder issue

Hello All,

I have a Sharepoint site for intranet usage.
I have created a Document Review library based in on of the great templates Microsoft released for wss3.0.
My Library name is: InternalDocuments
Inside of this library I have 3 folders: "Approved", "Drafts" and "Obsolete".

My "Approved" folder is to keeo the approved documents that can be used with no issue.
My "Drafts" folder is for documents that are not yet approved, some kind of work in progress.
My "obsolete" is for archived documents, documents we don't use anymore.

I have some workflow to manage this library but there is one think I would love to do by workflow and I am not able to.

I would like to create a workflow that moves a document from the "Drafts" folder to the "Approved" folder when the document status changes from "draft" to "approved".

It's very easy to move items between lists if you use the "Copy List item" function in the workflow...I can even use the "creat list item". But the problem is to add the path to the specific folder I want.

Can someone give a little help on this?

Hello,
I think your only option is to use custom SharePoint designer Activity:

It's an interesting tool and I have tested it but nothing happens. When I select one of the action the tool offers, nothing happens. Any suggestion?
