Glad you got it working.  :)

This is why I recommended Helm.  It's just so much easier, because you
get a big window with all the potential completions listed, and then it
narrows down the list as you type.  You can type any part of any word
anywhere in any item, and it will narrow down to that item.  The default
Emacs completion is like stumbling around in the dark, by comparison.
Ivy is another good completion package, but it doesn't do nearly as much
(which some people prefer).

Anyway, if you install Helm, just run helm-mode, and then try
org-refile.  I think you'll like it.

Check out the variable org-refile-use-outline-path.  It's nil by
default, but by setting it to 'file, it puts the filename first.
