I am using a barcode software that a company gave some visual basic code to auto-generate a serial number via a file it reference.  I have the code listed below but I want to be able to change the path of where the file is located.  I am not familiar enough with visual basic to do this so I need some help.  The code is below:

'Called whenever this sub string needs to be displayed on the screen.

name = "SN"
Dim objFSO
Dim objStream

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FilesystemObject")

If NOT objFSO.FileExists(Format.Directory & "\" & name & ".txt") Then
      Set objFile = objFSO.CreateTextFile(Format.Directory & "\" & name & ".txt")
      objFile.WriteLine "0"
      objFile.Close
      set objFile = Nothing
End If

Set objFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile(Format.Directory & "\" & name & ".txt")

Value = objFile.Readline
objFile.Close

set objFile = Nothing
set objFSO = Nothing
