ModelBuilder: 'Cannot Create Output' from Summary Statistics Tool

Hi All,

I have a Summary Stats tool at the end of a workflow in ModelBuilder which isn't functioning. At the beginning on the model, I set the workspace as a model variable to a geodatabase, e.g. E:\Temp.gdb and various other files are created within a feature class in this geodatabase.

Now I know a table cannot be stored in a feature class, however I can't get this stats table to store anywhere in the geodatabase. If I run the tool separately, it runs fine therefore with identical case fields etc, model synax shouldn't be the issue.

I currently have the output path as %Workspace%\Stats, where %Workspace% is as above, E:\Temp.gdb however when I do this, I get a dialog box entitled 'New ArcInfo Workspace' and it prompts me to enter a new workspace, even though I have defined the workspace as a model parameter at the start of the workflow. I must just be a path and/or inline variable syntax issue but I cannot figure it out.

And I cannot use the Parse Path tool instead of workspace as the file I am creating stats from is in a feature dataset and this conflicts with the table, as described above.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
