Returns the disk or Web path to the document. Read-only String.

expression .Path

expression Required. A variable that represents a Document object.

The path doesn't include a trailing character — for example, "C:\MSOffice" or "http://MyServer". Use the PathSeparator property to add the character that separates folders and drive letters. Use the Name property to return the file name without the path and use the FullName property to return the file name and the path together.

Note Note

You can use the PathSeparator property to build Web addresses even though they contain forward slashes (/) and the PathSeparator property defaults to a backslash (\).

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

MsgBox ActiveDocument.Path & Application.PathSeparator & _ 

This example changes the current folder to the path of the template attached to the active document.

ChDir ActiveDocument.AttachedTemplate.Path
