I have a sub that calls another sub.
During the second sub a variable value is set. How can I then access that var from the calling sub.
The second sub sets a var to be the value of a fileupload path. The 1st sub does an insert into a table and needs that value.

Also, how can I make the saveas path local to the app?
I tried "~/appname/images/photos" + fileName
But I get an error saying that the path is not rooted?
I can use "c:\temp\uploads\" + filename but I'd prefer to keep the path relative to the app
