Instance naming (file/folder save name) not working in Collect 1.4.7


The file and folder names need to be created at the moment you select the
blank form (before anything is evaluated), and they need to be retrievable
over the course of filling out the form (during which your instance name
formula may produce different name values); therefore, the file and folder
names cannot depend upon the instance name formula.

Perhaps the answer is this simple: perhaps the file and folder names
aren't even supposed to follow the instanceName property?
