    Hi All,

    I'm pretty new to azure and am hitting the following problem. I've got a notebook that creates an output csv file. The file gets named to the default Part-0000-tid and I want to rename it to something more sensible. The code below shows what I've done. The problem is it creates a subfolder in the destination folder with the new filename and then within that folder it has the renamed file ( see attached screenshot). It looks like I'm close but no quiet right. I need the new file to be up 1 level and appear in the outbound folder. Any help would be appreciated


    import os, sys, datetime

    readPath = "/mnt/publisheddatasmets1mig/metering/smets1mig/cs/system_data_build/notes/outbound/"

    writePath = "/mnt/publisheddatasmets1mig/metering/smets1mig/cs/system_data_build/notes/outbound/"

    file_list =

    for i in file_list:

    file_path = i[0]

    file_name = i[1]


    Current_Date = ('%Y-%m-%d-%H%M%S')

    fname = "CS_Notes_" + str(Current_Date) + ".csv"

    for i in file_list:

    if i[1].startswith("part-00000"):
