Mapping Question, getting some error with a <cfset>

Hi,

I am trying to use the following code, but seem to get an error with this line:

<cfset href = /Mapped_Dir/&#GetFileFromPath(Key)#>      

Error:  Invalid CFML construct found on line 52 at column 47.  
ColdFusion was looking at the following text:
/

 
I tried to setup a mapping ColdFusion (not sure if I was supposed to or not, but thought I should).  The mapping looked like this in CFadmin

Logical Path: /Mapped_Dir
Directory Path: X:\files

The code block is below:

<CFOUTPUT query="GetResults">
                  
      <cfset dbfilename = #GetFileFromPath(Key)#>
      <cfset href = /Mapped_Dir/&#GetFileFromPath(Key)#>      
            
      <tr>
                      <td class="intro">
<a class="blah" href="##" onclick="javascript: window.open       ('#href#','','toolbar=yes,status=yes,menubar=yes,scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes,location=yes,width=800,height=600'); return false;">
        #dbfilename#
</a>                              
            </TD>
      </tr>            
                  
</CFOUTPUT>      

It seems some of the slashes in the <cfset> tag shown above are creating the problem.

Anyone have any thoughts?

Thanks
