here is my example but how can I list another directory like budget in my example

I would like to to modify this path, to any path I choose.

<!---------------------------------------------------------------------
This example shows the use of cfdirectory to display
the contents of the directory in where the current
<this file name>.cfm is located.
---------------------------------------------------------------------->
<html>
<head>
<title>
cfdirectory Example
</title>
</head>
<body>
<H1>cfdirectory Example</H1>
<!--- use cfdirectory to give the contents of the snippets directory,
order by name and size (you may need to modify this path) --->
<h3>cfdirectory Example</h3>
<!--- use cfdirectory to give the contents of the snippets directory,
order by name and size (you may need to modify this path) --->
<cfset x = "/Inet_findev/budget/">
<cfoutput>
list last dir: #listlast(x,'/')#<br>
</cfoutput>

<cfoutput>
directory="#GetDirectoryFromPath(GetTemplatePath())#"
</cfoutput>

<cfdirectory
  directory="#GetDirectoryFromPath(GetTemplatePath())#"
  name="myDirectory"
  sort="name ASC, size DESC, datelastmodified">
<!---- Output the contents of the cfdirectory as a cftable ----->
<cftable
  query="myDirectory"
  colSpacing = "10"
  htmltable
  colheaders>
  <cfcol
    header="NAME:"
    align = "Left"
    width = 20
    text="#Name#">
  <cfcol
    header="SIZE:"
    align = "Left"
    width = 20
    text="#Size#">
  <cfcol
    header="date last modified:"
    align = "Left"
    width = 20
    text="#datelastmodified#">
</cftable>
</body>
</html>

This should work:
<cfset x = "foldername">

<cfoutput>
directory="#GetDirectoryFromPath(ExpandPath(x))#"
</cfoutput>

<cfdirectory
  directory="#GetDirectoryFromPath(ExpandPath(x))#"
  ....

You can also do paths like:
<cfset x = "../../">
<cfset x = "../../differentfoldername">

the C.cfm is in E:\Inet_findev\benchmark\
~~~~~~~~ C.cfm
<cfset x = "../budget">
<cfoutput>
x = #x#<BR>
GetDirectoryFromPath(ExpandPath(x))="#GetDirectoryFromPath(ExpandPath(x))#"<BR>
directory="#GetDirectoryFromPath(ExpandPath(x))#"<BR>
</cfoutput>
      <cfdirectory
        
  directory="#GetDirectoryFromPath(ExpandPath(x))#"
        
         name = "myDirectory" SORT = "name ASC, size DESC">
      <!--- Output the contents of the cfdirectory as a CFTABLE --->
      <cftable query = "myDirectory">
         <cfcol header = "NAME:" text = "#Name#">
      <cfcol header = "SIZE:" text = "#Size#">
      </cftable>
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
result

x = ../budget
GetDirectoryFromPath(ExpandPath(x))="E:\Inet_findev\"
directory="E:\Inet_findev\"

Here is the answer I was looking for

<FORM action="AA.cfm" METHOD="post">
<h3>Enter the name of a file in this directories <I>
<FONT SIZE="-1">
( try ../*.* )<!---E:\Inet_findev\---><br>
( try ../budget/*.* )<!---E:\Inet_findev\budget\---><br>
( try ../benchmark/*.* )<!---E:\Inet_findev\benchmark\---><br>
( try ../benchmark/test/*.* )<!---E:\Inet_findev\benchmark\---><br>
</FONT> </I></h3>
<INPUT TYPE="Text" NAME="myDir">
<INPUT TYPE="Submit" NAME="">
<cfset myDir="../benchmark/*.*">
<cfoutput>
<br>
The current directory is: #myDir#
</cfoutput>
</form>
<!---
<cfset thisPath=ExpandPath("../budget/*.*")>
--->
<cfset thisPath=ExpandPath("#Form.myDir#")>
<cfset thisDirectory=GetDirectoryFromPath(thisPath)>
<cfoutput>
The current directory is: #GetDirectoryFromPath(thisPath)#
</cfoutput>

<!---
<CFDIRECTORY action="LIST" name="dir" directory="#getdirectoryfrompath(expandpath("*.*"))#">
--->
<CFDIRECTORY action="LIST" name="dir" directory="#thisDirectory#">
<CFSET myQuery = QueryNew("name, size, type, DateLastModified, Attributes, Mode, Ext")>
<CFSET newRow  = QueryAddRow(MyQuery, dir.recordcount)>

<CFOUTPUT query="dir">
<CFSET temp = QuerySetCell(myQuery, "name", name, currentrow)>
<CFSET temp = QuerySetCell(myQuery, "size", size, currentrow)>
<CFSET temp = QuerySetCell(myQuery, "type", type, currentrow)>
<CFSET temp = QuerySetCell(myQuery, "DateLastModified", DateLastModified, currentrow)>
<CFSET temp = QuerySetCell(myQuery, "Attributes", Attributes, currentrow)>
<CFSET temp = QuerySetCell(myQuery, "Mode", Mode, currentrow)>
<CFSET temp = QuerySetCell(myQuery, "Ext", LISTLAST(name,"."), currentrow)>
</cfoutput>

<cfquery dbtype="query" name="sorted">
     SELECT *
     FROM myQuery
--     WHERE type <> 'Dir'
     ORDER BY DateLastModified DESC
</cfquery>
 
<CFDUMP var="#sorted#">
