I would like to read the Novell Netware Drive Mapping within  a program (e.g. C-program or Excel-macro) running under Windows 3.1.
For example, my file manager shows drive N: in the title bar as

                                [N:\ - \\SERVER\SYS\DATA]

and I would like to read the string "\\SERVER\SYS\DATA".

Can anyone help ?

There is an undocumented DOS command called 'truename'  It will return the UNC name for drive letters.  Perhaps in a 'C' program, you could use that.  Try it.  If the drive is local, it will return the drive letter, if not, it returns the UNC name.
