BuildPath Method

Appends a name to an existing path.


                      object.BuildPath(path, name) 

object

Required. Always the name of a FileSystemObject.

path

Required. Existing path to which name is appended. Path can be absolute or relative and need not specify an existing folder.

name

Required. Name being appended to the existing path.

The BuildPath method inserts an additional path separator between the existing path and the name, only if necessary.

The following example illustrates use of the BuildPath method.

function GetBuildPath(path)
{
   var fso, newpath;
   fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
   newpath = fso.BuildPath(path, "New   Folder");
   return(newpath);
}   

Function GetBuildPath(path)
   Dim fso, newpath
   Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
   newpath = fso.BuildPath(path, "Sub Folder") 
   GetBuildPath = newpath
End Function
