Procedure DataFileGetPath(datafile, path)


The predefined set AllDataFiles (and its subsets AllCases and AllDataSets), is an integer set. The mapping of these integers onto the cases and datasets in the project is maintained by the data manager, and is not editable. With the procedure DataFileGetPath you can obtain the path in the data manager for any element of the set AllDataFiles (cases or datasets). The path of a datafile consists of a sequence folder names and the name of the datafile itself, separated by backslash characters.
