Application.PathSeparator Property

Office 2007
Returns a String that represents the character used to separate folder names. Read-only.



expression   A variable that represents a Application object.

Return Value


You can use PathSeparator to build Web addresses even though they contain forward slashes (/).

The FullName property returns the path and file name as a single string.

For worldwide compatibility, we recommend that you use this property when building paths, rather than referring explicitly to path separator characters in code (for example, "/").


This example displays the path and file name of the active document.

Visual Basic for Applications
Sub PathFileName()

    With Application
        MsgBox "The name of the active document: " & vbLf & _
            .Path & .PathSeparator & ActiveDocument.Name
    End With

End Sub
