I have lotusscript that is detaching OLE objects to end user selected file location.  If the user uses a mapped drive I want my script to determine the actual file location on the server.  
ie.
if "Z:\filename.xxx is returned, I need to know server and filepath.
ie.
\\server\filpath\filename.xxx

You will need to capture the list of all the mapped drives possibly by using the net command  to show and output to a text file that you can read, or with WIn32 API , and then substitute as needed.

net use > list01.txt

should show the connected, mapped drives.
You will need to parse it and then substitute as needed.


I hope this helps !

Function ConvertToUNC(Byval letterPath As String) As String
	If Left$(letterPath,2) = "\\" Then 'already a full UNC
		ConvertToUNC = letterPath
		Exit Function
	Elseif Left$(letterPath,1) = "\" Then 'path off current drive
		letterPath = Curdrive$ & letterPath
	REM two possibilities left, either it is a DOS path (x:\folder) or just a folder (NOTES\DATA) that needs current directory in front
	Elseif Mid$(letterPath,2,1) <> ":" Then
		letterPath = Curdir$ & "\" & letterPath
	End If
	
	Dim drive As String, tree As String, network As Variant, drives As Variant, index As Integer, limit As Integer
	drive = Ucase(Left$(letterPath,2))
	tree = Mid$(letterPath,3)
	Set network = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
	Set drives = network.EnumNetworkDrives()
	limit = drives.Count()-1 '0 index, so count is one above the Ubound
	For index = 0 To limit Step 2
		If Ucase(drives(index)) = drive Then
			ConvertToUNC = drives(index+1) & tree
			Exit Function
		End If
	Next index
	ConvertToUnc = drive & tree
End Function
