Document.Path Property

Word Developer Reference

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

Syntax

expression.Path

expression Required. A variable that represents a Document object.

Remarks

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.

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