... The one that is causing me issue now is one that is an number followed by a " | " ... For example File 13 | 3 now I can get it to create a folder similar to what I want but it removes the | 3 and cuts it down to File 13. ...

The pipe symbol '|' is a reserved character in the file system for the purpose of pipelining, therefore it is not valid to be used within a filename.
You should replace the pipe symbol with an allowed character, e.g. '~', ...
or apply the function $validate.

Thank you for the insight however if I replace the pipe symbol with another one, would I not still have the same existing problem but with a different character in place as it would still format as File 13 and omit the remainder which would be the new symbol and the following number. I also tried playing around with the $validate function and it either generates a folder for year only or not at all..perhaps it is my positioning of the term that is causing the issue but I am unable to get this to play nicely with the others...

That sounds like a conjunctivist question?
What does happen in reality, when you ommit restricted characters from the filepath?

If you create a filename or a foldername, then the rules of the underlying file system defines the creation of names, and therefore there are characters, which are allowed, and some characters, which are forbidden to be applied within names.

The function $validate(filename, to) replaces each invalid character of the set [/?*"<>|:] with a valid character of your choice.

_FILENAME <== $validate(%_filename%,'_')
... replaces all invalid characters with an underscore letter.

_FILENAME <== $validate(%_filename%,'~')
... replaces all invalid characters with a tilde letter.

_DIRECTORY <== $validate('C:\yourpath\'%artist%'\'%album%'\'%year%),'_')
... replaces all invalid characters with an underscore letter.

To avoid further misunderstandings please show us a real world example from your doing.
