Greetings Experts!

Does anyone out there know some code to insert just the file's path without the file name (i.e. Filename \p)?  What I am trying to do is stamp the doc first with the path, go to the next line down on the page and then insert the file name.  Any help is appreciated.  Thanks!

Anyway I can write it into the document instead of displaying it as a message box?  The problem is that previously I used the filename \p asigned to a button.  We re-organized our file structure and now the stamp is too long.  As a result, I wanted the path to show on one line and the file name to appear on  the next line down.

Thanks!

Sub Test
    With ActiveDocument
        .Select
       
        Selection.TypeText Text:=.Path
        Selection.TypeParagraph
        Selection.TypeText Text:=.Name
    End With
End Sub

You can also use the insertafter or insertbefore methods

Sub Test
    With ActiveDocument
        .Select
       
        Selection.InsertBefore .Path
        Selection.InsertBefore vbCr
        Selection.InsertBefore .Name
    End With
End Sub
