The AnyPath data type is a text string containing either a full path or a relative path. When specifying a relative path, you can include a long file name with the short file name by separating the short and long names with a vertical bar (|). Note that you cannot specify multiple levels of a directory or fully qualified paths in this way. The path may contain properties enclosed within square brackets ([ ]).

Examples of valid AnyPath data:

  • \\server\share\temp
  • c:\temp
  • \temp
  • projec~1|Project Status

Examples of invalid AnyPath data:

  • c:\temp\projec~1|c:\temp one\Project Status
  • \temp\projec~1|\temp one\Project Status
