Hey,

I use the below code to set the variable "strDoc" to a file name:

Code:
With Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogFilePicker)
        .Show
        If .SelectedItems.Count = 0 Then
            GetFolderPath = False
        Else
            strDoc = .SelectedItems(1)
        End If
    End With

This gets me just the file name, so the variable would be something like strDoc = "Shareholder Letter.docx" or some other name ending in the traditional file extension.

I'm wondering if and hoping that there's syntax available that will allow me to use that same variable but derive it's folder path (not including the file name). So, I'd hope for something like strDoc.FullPath or something would work.
