I have this line of code that works Intermittently:

Dim filepath As String = Server.MapPath("\emergency_instructions.txt")

When it fails I get, "Failed to map the path '/emergency_instructions.txt'.  I do not understand why it sometimes works.

Thanks.  I just realized I was one level off as far as the folder.  I need to specify:

"..\emergency_instructions.txt")
