trouble saving data structure to a file

The save command is driving me crazy. I am working in a GUI where I am storing some data variables in the handles data structure. I have collected the data I wish to export into a structure called handles.inputData. handles.inputData contains three structures, which are called A, B, C. Each of these contains several other structures and arrays.

I want to export A, B, and C to a file, but I keep getting "The argument to -STRUCT must be the name of a scalar structure variable."

I have a variable called "filename" which contains a path and name of an output file.

The command: save(filename, '-struct', 'handles.inputData.A') does not work.
The command: save(filename, '-struct', 'handles.inputData') does not work.
The command: save(filename, '-struct', 'handles') does work.

handles.inputData is confirmed to be a "1x1 struct" in the Variable Editor window.

Can anyone help me understand what is going wrong here and show me how to save my structures?
