Try this:
        Dim u As New Uri("")
        Dim s As String = u.Segments(u.Segments.Count - 1)

Open in new window

EDIT: or do you also need to parse the date into a date var from this?
Dim filePath As String = "" 
Dim result As String
result = Path.GetFileName(filePath)

Open in new window

what about:
inFullPath As String = ""
outFileName = inFullPath.Substring(inFullPath.LastIndexOf("/") + 1)
Return outFileName

Open in new window

That should work as well. There are several ways to do that.
