Take a look at the GetFileOpenName ( title, pathname, filename {, extension
{, filter } } ) function.
The pathname parameter will contain the directory.
BTW, this newsgroup is for Infomaker questions. PB questions you should
post in newsgroup powersoft.public.powerbuilder.xxxxx (xxxx being general,
database, datawindow etc).
