Different results from Template column and edit template for saving books

Hi everyone.

Why does a template test-column and the template tester for Saving Books to Disk show me 2 different results? I have a template test-column in my library in which I have this and it shows me exactly an output exactly like I want:

1 Fandom = folder named after the fandom
2 Fandoms = folder named Crossovers
3 Fandoms or more = folder named Multiple Crossovers

Code:
program: 
tmp1 = template('{#fandoms:sublist(0,2,\,)}{#fandom_secondary:sublist(0,2,\,)}/{author}/{title} ({#story_id})');
tmp2 = template('Crossovers/{#fandoms:sublist(0,2,\,)}{#fandom_secondary:sublist(0,2,\,)}/{author}/{title} ({#story_id})');
tmp3 = template('Multiple Crossovers/{author}/{title} ({#story_id})');
check = count(field('#fandoms'), '&');
check=cmp(check,3,check,check,3);
## new version as "case of count =x"
switch(
		check,
				1, tmp1,
				2, tmp2,
				tmp3);
When I add this in the template editor for Saving to Disk it only creates the Multiple Crossovers folder.

I've tried removing all the spaces and everything else I could think of, but it still only shows the Multiple Crossovers folder, and when I save books none of the folders are created.

Here's the "compressed" version:

Code:
program:tmp1=template('{#fandoms:sublist(0,2,\,)}{#fandom_secondary:sublist(0,2,\,)}/{author}/{title} ({#story_id})');tmp2=template('Crossovers/{#fandoms:sublist(0,2,\,)}{#fandom_secondary:sublist(0,2,\,)}/{author}/{title} ({#story_id})');tmp3=template('Multiple Crossovers/{author}/{title} ({#story_id})');check=count(field('#fandoms'), '&');check=cmp(check,3,check,check,3);switch(check,1, tmp1,2, tmp2,tmp3);
Here's 3 versions of what it's supposed to do:

Harry Potter/Mireille/Tired (AO3-13781403)

Crossovers/Criminal Minds & Criminal Minds Beyond Borders/youvebeenwinchesterd/Cheer You Up (AO3-14946017)

Multiple Crossovers/Sevensmommy/Roots Before Branches (AO3-14882856)

I hope someone can help.

I got other examples than this where it doesn't work, if that's what you meant.

Not really a programmer but just a quick thought, if you're counting the number of occurrences of "&" in #fandoms, wouldn't that return (n-1) fandoms?

e.g.
0: one fandom
1: two fandoms
2: three fandoms
