Flow that parses filename to create folder issue

Hello, is there anyway I could extend on this and create a second folder.

 

So currently the solution works and creates a folder from filename FOLDER-DOCUMENT.docx, creating folder named FOLDER then moving the file to that folder.

 

However if I wanted to change the filename so it is FOLDER-SUBFOLDER-DOCUMENT.docx how would I go about this.

 

I have tried a few variations but end up spawning too many folder or none at all with errors.  I assume I need to Compose and split the string properly.  The document will then be moved into the SUBFOLDER.

 

Thankyou,

Thanks for the support.

 

I decided to create two inputs; 

 

FILENAME: FOLDER1#FOLDER2-DOCUMENT

 

1: 

first(split(triggerBody()?['Name'],'#'))

 

2: 

last(split(first(split(triggerBody()?['Name'],'-')),'#'))
 
The in create folder action I call the two Inputs as INPUT1\INPUT2 ouputs on the folder path.
 
Thankyou,

Please see my example below that demonstrates how you might go about this.  I start with a string that I have manually entered as a proxy for the file name  - substitute the file name for my string in the first compose action.  I tested the solution below and it runs without error.

Let me know if you need additional help.
