    Using the backslash character



      Using the backslash character


      Does anyone know how can I refer to the backslash character (\) in a calculation?

      The problem is as follows:


      - I have a field (pathfield) with the path of a picture stored in a Directory (e.g. C:\MyDirectory\Mypicture.ext)

      - Sometimes the Picture is stored in a network directory.

      - I want to have a script which imports the picture after it calculates whether the path of the file is from a remote computer or not.




      I imagine that the script should first have a variable ($correctpath) defined from a calculation like:


                          "imagewin://pathfield"             //if the path of the file is remote

                           ;"imagewin:/pathfield"  )        //if the path of the file is local


       And then an "Import picture" script step, with the path reference equal to the result of the $correctpath variable.


      My difficulty however, is in using the backslash character (\) in the calculation formula (since it is used by the pathfield), because it is not recognized.


      Any ideas?
