Path Property (FileSystemObject)

Returns the path for a specified file, folder, or drive.



The object is always a File, Folder, or Drive object.

For drive letters, the root drive is not included. For example, the path for the C drive is C:, not C:\.

The following code illustrates the use of the Path property with a File object:

function ShowFileAccessInfo(filespec)
   var fso, d, f, s;
   fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
   f = fso.GetFile(filespec);
   s = f.Path.toUpperCase() + "<br>";
   s += "Created: " + f.DateCreated + "<br>";
   s += "Last Accessed: " + f.DateLastAccessed + "<br>";
   s += "Last Modified: " + f.DateLastModified   
Function ShowFileAccessInfo(filespec)
   Dim fso, d, f, s
   Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
   Set f = fso.GetFile(filespec)
   s = UCase(f.Path) & "<BR>"
   s = s & "Created: " & f.DateCreated & "<BR>"
   s = s & "Last Accessed: " & f.DateLastAccessed & "<BR>"
   s = s & "Last Modified: " & f.DateLastModified   
   ShowFileAccessInfo = s
End Function
