Problem when I schedule an automation script

When I schedule this automation script, it errors out and I get this message in the log. "Rpt_99.log: Export_1 - Could not find a part of the path 'M:\East\05. Respite Cost Plans Per person'...

When I schedule this automation script, it errors out and I get this message in the log.  "Rpt_99.log: Export_1 - Could not find a part of the path 'M:\East\05. Respite Cost Plans Per person'."

The path and file is not associated with this script anywhere.

Here is a copy of the log file.

I have other scripts that are failing with the same error message.

Any ideas about what is causing this?

I am using version 4.0.0.624 and having issues with the pivot grid.  When I run a query and right click in the results I can choose send to pivot grid but nothing happens. My result set is small.  Also, when I try and open a tpg file created in a prior version nothing happens--I don't get an error message.  It just doesn't open.  Is there a known bug about this?

I work in a large Microsoft SQL Server data warehouse that unfortunately uses the Money datatype in many places. For years I have been exporting data to excel and sending off to whoever. Recently though, since I upgraded to TDP 4.0.0.624, when I quick export a dataset to an excel file, the money datatype columns are stored as text. BUT, if I do a quick export to an excel instance, the money columns are stored as numbers and it works fine. So this issue only occurs when exporting straight to a file. 

If it makes any difference, we are on office 2007.
