There are a couple of ways but here's one

Dim strParts As String

strParts = Split(?C:\Documents and Settings\All Users.WINDOWS\Documents\Real20CardKeno\KingKeno\SavedKingKenoGames\9-spot bet 1.50.cle","\")

Msgbox strParts(ubound(strParts))

Sorry, change

Dim strParts As String

to

Dim strParts() As String

and

Split(?C:\Documents and Settings\All Users.WINDOWS\Documents\Real20CardKeno\KingKeno\SavedKingKenoGames\9-spot bet 1.50.cle","\")

to

Split("C:\Documents and Settings\All Users.WINDOWS\Documents\Real20CardKeno\KingKeno\SavedKingKenoGames\9-spot bet 1.50.cle","\")

I apologize for the mistakes.

Seems vb gives an error
Dim strParts As String
      strParts = Split(myfile, "\")
      Debug.Print strParts(UBound(strParts))<-- expected array
