    Hello Sam,

    It seems you are using custom URL. The above form URL will not work because you are using date in the URL which has separator "/". Technically "/" will check for a child folder in the web server.

    Please avoid the "/", "'", ";" and any other special characters from the custom URL and that should solve your problem. Please be noted that "_" and "-" will work just fine in your form custom URL.

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!

    Just to add to my colleague's advice, the apostrophe in St_Paul's will also cause a problem.
