MATLAB: How to print some text in a txt file in another folder

print out result

Dear All,
Hope this message finds you all being safe and healthy.
I am trying to print some text and save them in a txt file in another folder. My code is as follows:
if ~exist('Solutions', 'dir')
mkdir('Solutions')
end
fileID = fopen('GeneralResults.txt','w');
fprintf(fileID, ' ###################################################################');
fprintf(fileID, ' # #');
fprintf(fileID, ' # The code is finished on May 08, 2020. #');
fprintf(fileID, ' # #');
fprintf(fileID, ' ###################################################################');
fclose(fileID);
I run the above code, but I found the result is Not correct:
1). The file I created "GeneralResults.txt' was Not saved in the folder 'Solutions', but in current folder.
I will really appreciate it if you can help me to fix these two problems. Thanks a lot.
Best regards,
Benson

    cd('../')
