I have a piece of code that saves a file to the directory named in the environmetal variable path for tmp (i.e. in this case C:\...\...\...\My Documents).

As the exact string may change from user to user, i want to seach for the file based on the pathname stored in the environmental variable tmp and filename.

Is there a standard command to call this string value in access VB?
