Default Problem with Baffles creation

Hello Foamers,

My problem is simple, but I'm new to CFD and OpenFOAM, so I'm trying this thread. I have to simulate the airflow inside a box confined with baffles to generate a forced vortex. The box is 3m long and shortly after the control volume becomes larger and the air that was running constantly expands into the atmosphere. I'm attaching some pictures to help understand the problem if one can't understand by the previous explanation.

I started modifying the pitzDaily tutorial by changing the vertices, blocks and boundaries for my problem, and I think if I do not have the baffles I would run this problem easily. So I need a little help on how to create baffles properly. I started by following the steps in the TJunctionFan tutorial and I adapted to my problem, but when I set the "createBaffles" command it ran, but after the OF converge my simulation simply has no deflector. I tried the "createBaffles baffleFaces '(baffles baffles)'-overwrite" command, just like my tutorial shows, but I've got:
"-> FOAM FATAL ERROR: Wrong number of arguments, expected 0 found 2 "

Any suggestions of what I could do? Not just for this error, but with my problem in general.

The picture, blockMeshDict, topoSetDict and createBafflesDict are attached in the link bellow:
