Creates the appropriate folder specified by path.

This function creates all folders that do not already exist in the specified path. If a file or folder already exists at the specified location, the function returns an error instead of overwriting the existing file or folder.

prompt (Create Folder) is the message that appears above the list of files and directories, or folder, in the file dialog box.
path is the absolute path to the folder you want to create. If you do not wire data to path, the function displays a dialog box from which you can select a folder. If you specify an empty or relative path, this function returns an error.
error in describes error conditions that occur before this node runs. This input provides standard error in functionality.
created path specifies the new location of the folder. If the operation is unsuccessful, this function sets created path to <Not A Path>.
cancelled is TRUE if you cancel the file dialog box. Otherwise, cancelled is FALSE, even if this function returns an error.
error out contains error information. This output provides standard error out functionality.
