# FM9 Scripting Double Backslash

### Title

FM9 Scripting Double Backslash

### Post

Hi there, I'm trying to write a script with a text string that contains a double backslash.  From what I gather backslash IS the escape character in FM scripting which makes this confusing for me.

Quote ("\server\share\") returns \server\share\

Quote ("\\server\share\") returns \server\share\

Quote ("\\\server\share\") returns \\\server\share\

????

Hi travbrack

"From what I gather backslash IS the escape character in FM scripting which makes this confusing for me."

It's not that difficult...

To get \ you have to write "\\"

SO

to get \\ you have to write "\\\\"
