Print file path in footer

I'm trying to find the variable/code that should be used to print the file path in the footer when printing out a script.  In the Page Setup dialog box, it has suggestions for other variables you can set and I have searched online for a list of addtional variable, but can't seem to find them.  At one point, I stumbled upon the suggestion to use &[PATH] but that didn't seem to work.  Tried different variations of this such as &path; &PATH &PATH;.  But none seemed to work.  


Please let me know if you have any suggestions or if I'm just searching online with the wrong keywords and should try something else.

Re: Print file path in footer

You can use JSL to save path information to a string variable:


p = obj << GetPath;


Then reference the string variable when you save the PDF:


x = CurrentJournal();
x << SetPrintFooters( p /*left*/, "" /*center*/, "Page &pn; of &pc;" /*right*/ );
x << SavePDF( p, Show Page Setup(0) );
