Dispatch Script won't run if hard path listed

Here is my issue....

 

I have two dispatch scripts set to run on ADD in two different folders. One of the folders is a CHILD to the other.

Result I am looking for:

  • Place PDF file in BOL directory and have it renamed to BOL - XXXXXX.PDF
  • Place PDF file in SIGNED BOLS directory and have it renamed to SIGNED BOL - XXXXXX.PDF

 

If I use WILDCARDS  for paths, when I drag a PDF into the SIGNED BOLS directory, it run the dispatch script for the BOL (parent directory) first then runs the dispatch script for the SIGNED BOLS directory.

 

I am not understanding why it doesn't work if I HARD CODE both of the paths into each dispatch script.

 

Right now with the way they are shown below, only the SIGNED BOL dispatch script executes.

 

If I have the path "hard coded" the script will not execute...

 

But if I use WILDCARDS it works fine....
