I have a directory with files of various names.  I need to strip out only the name of the file, but how to I get the name at the end of the directory/file name string.  For example, below
is a fulle name, but I only want what is after the Appr_, that is, I only need Appr_01AB55279_20060803.pdf

"\\sf4\user1\Private\ACH\OID\Repository\SCANNED DOCS\S\Appr_01AB55279_20060803.pdf"
