.vbs convert filename to 8.3

I was wondering if anyone had a simple code snippet that would convert a filename (contained in a string) to an 8.3 filename (contained in a string).


C:\Documents and Settings\Dave

I want to add this snippet to my existing .vbs script, so no "other" solutions please.


I just figured this one out myself.  The answer was for me to use a combination of trim() and mid().  So, shall i award the points to whoever can tell me how to remove this question?
