GetBaseName Method

See Also    Example    Applies To    Specifics


Returns a string containing the base name of the last component, less any file extension, in a path.



The GetBaseName method syntax has these parts:

Part Description
object Required. Always the name of a FileSystemObject.
path Required. The path specification for the component whose base name is to be returned.


The GetBaseName method returns a zero-length string ("") if no component matches the path argument.

Note   The GetBaseName method works only on the provided path string. It does not attempt to resolve the path, nor does it check for the existence of the specified path.
