SharePoint Designer: Using Update List Item to move file into a folder causing error

I'm using a SharePoint 2010 workflow to move a file into a folder, within a library, based on a column value and it's not working.  I'm using "Update List Item" and updating the "Path and Name" field, using the String Builder.

The problem is, the update action keeps causing an error.  The error is, "The workflow could not update the item, possibly because one or more columns for the item require a different type of information.".

I've tried plain text, variables, references to fields, but mostly combinations of those.  Nothing seems to work.  I've also tried a 1-minute pause before the Update action.  Something in that Path, I think, is not being accepted.  What formats will the "Path and Name" field accept and reject?  I can't even update a file to it's own current path, so I have to be doing something wrong here.

For instance:
"[%Current Item:Path%]/[%Current Item:Name%]" doesn't work
"/CHORUS/Resume New Repository/dummy doc2.txt" doesn't work
"/CHORUS/Resume New Library/[%Current Item:Name%]" didn't work

I've even tried a complete URL.

I've got it!  What I did was, I created a variable for "folder value".
Then, in the String Builder I used [%Variable: folder_value%]/[%Current Item:Name%]
In this case, the Field was "Name (for use in forms)".

My mistake was in including too much information.
It doesn't need the site, or even the document library.
Just make sure the folder's there first, too.
