Hi! Experts,
        I'm using this on a button on my form
        FIELD fld_filelocation := @Prompt([LocalBrowse]; "Select a database to open"; "1");""
now this displays C:\Lotus\Notes\Data\log.nsf.

Question:   How can it not include log.nsf when it displays.

I'm not sure if I'm getting your question right, but if you want to make fld_filelocation equal just "C:\Lotus\Notes\Data" without the log.nsf part, you can just do it this way:

FIELD fld_filelocation := @Left(@Prompt([LocalBrowse]; "Select a database to open"; "1"); "\\");""

This is the right track but this gives me only C:
