Get Path() only returning the file name?

I'm try to get the full path of the "current data table". Get Path() is only returning the file name. Yesterday it was returning the full path and I can't figure out what changed. Help!

I'm using JMP 11.2.0 (64 bit) on Win7.

Thanks,

Tony

Re: Get Path() only returning the file name?

Well, have you made the sure the file has been saved?  There won't be a path if there is no file.  All JMP can return is the name.

dt = Open( "$SAMPLE_DATA/Big Class.jmp" );

path = dt << Get Path();

Show( path );

dt2 = New Table("test");

path = dt2 << Get Path();

Show( path );

Returns:

path = "C:\Program Files\SAS\JMPPRO\12\Samples\Data\Big Class.jmp";

path = "test.jmp";
