Starting directory

I have an application that resides on (X) drive & directory
which can be anything. I need to open a control file that
is contained in the same directory & drive letter. I can't
get VB to do this. In my control file I have a drive letter
& pathname which I use to do a CHDIR & it works. Is there
a way to get a file from the calling directory without having to hard code?
Thanks,
William

What you need is App.Path
This will give you the drive letter and path where your executable resides.
