The purpose of this article to help troubleshoot when receiving the message:

[Error] An error occurred in pipeline 'Splits' while processing stage transform 'wwtransform:common/splits/names.xsl'.

[Error] Function 'wwfilesystem:Combine()' has failed.

[Error] Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation.

[Error] The given path's format is not supported.

If you are receiving this error message, then you have probably used a special character in your filename markers. You will need to open your document and check all your filename markers to ensure that there are no special characters.


Special characters include: \ / : * ? " < > |

For example, if you had a filename marker that had the marker text myoutput : myfilename you would receive the error message. This is because you cannot have special characters in file paths. In this example, you would need to remove the colon and have the marker text read myoutput_myfilename or myoutput myfilename.
