Hello

I want to get the path of de current database, but without de filename. in lotusscript.
so for example i have the following file.

c:/lotus/notes/test.nsf

what i want to get is:

c:/lotus/notes/

I am trying this with Evaluate("@ReplaceSubString(pad, filenaam, )

when i do this i get the correct path only without the slashes, so i get

c:lotusnotes

how can i correct this.

in the formula it removes the single backslash. try the following:

GLDbPath = Left$(db.FilePath, Len(db.FilePath)-Len(db.FileName))
