i'm needing to use a text file for a databse path. i will read this path for the connection of the DB. what i can't control is the physical path that the files will be placed on whatever server. so i was wanting to just place the text file in the root of my files, and just read it in. my question is..<BR><BR>can i use a virtual path instead of the physical?<BR>so instead of: const strFileName = "C:InetpubwwwrootOTNfile.txt"<BR>i can use something like: const strFileName = "file.txt"<BR><BR>and have it look in the root of the directory. is there anyway to do this?<BR><BR>many thanks!
