You could use the Get ( DocumentsPath ) function to find out the users HD name and then add on to that to navigate to the location you want.
So go get the result for your examply try:
& Left ( Get ( DocumentsPath ) ; Position ( Get ( DocumentsPath ) ; "/" ; 1 ; 2 ) ) &
Also if the file you are navigating to is in the FileMaker app folder then the Get ( FileMakerPath ) will give you the full path to that location minus the "filemac:"
I hope this helps.
Try the Get (SystemDrive) function.
Nice one comment, i didn't know that even existed.
How can I add a full data source file path in the Edit Data Source list that refers to the system startup disk without knowing what the end user actually named their start up disk?
I don't think you can do that. Variables are not supported as paths to data sources. You can, however, specify a relative path.
>>Variables are not supported as paths to data sources.
Exactly, thats my problem. Using GET functions would work great if I could use a variable as a data source.
