Move Files to Trash Folder Action Post-Conversion

I have a very simple folder action that looks like this: http://www.awesomescreenshot.com/image/ … 77a030935a

Works totally fine and does what it's supposed to do. But it gets messed up when more than one file is in the "ForSQL" folder. I've tried a few different "move finder items to trash" action combinations, but I can't seem to get it. I think it might be getting confused between the initial "ForSQL" folder and the "SQL" folder in ultimately ends up in.

Can anybody point me in the direction of the steps I should include so that after the conversion/move runs, it goes back into the ForSQL folder and deletes it? I was hoping the move would move it entirely (not just copy it) but it seems like the conversion is creating the .csv and moving that one to the SQL folder and I still need to delete the old .xls (or whatever) file.
