Problem Creating Actions

It's been awhile since I have created an action however I am running into an iisue I don't remeber having before. When I record the action and group all my layers together then stop recording, if I run another action on top of it that is also grouped, it puts the previous group in the folder as well. How do I stop it from doing that?

 

In the example below I ran my Background Selective Color action. Then I ran my Dodge and Burn action. It automatically put the first action in the D&B group which I dont want. I want to keep all my groups separate

When you create an action, it will ask you which folder (set) you want to record it into. No worries if it's in the wrong set: just create a new set, name it, and drag and drop your action into it. Be sure to save each Action Set (folder) in the Action panel menu every time you make a change to it or you risk losing those changes.

I already have them in a set. The problem is when I run the action itself, it puts the layers below it in the action group.

I think I'm confused.

 

What does it mean to have layers below the action and what does it mean that the layers are put into an action set? Can you clarify what is happening?

I think I just figured it out. I believe it was a naming conflict

Okay. If you still need help, try to show before and after screen shots. If the issue is in the action itself, collapse the actions if you need to reorder them by dragging.
