Good sir

I thank you so much for stepping in and pointing the way.

I located the function in my current dUFLP, but it appeared to be a little
out of date, so I downloaded the dUFLP from Ken's website.

I've done the incantations and the burning of the sacred herbs, but I can't
get that function to work. It's something way down in the weeds as Windows
itself interrupts and closes dBASE. I re-read many things but did not find
the error in my ways.

While I was flailing about, I did come across a bunch of stuff from long ago
(I'm guessing 2005-2010?); so long ago that it had been forgotten, but was
still being copied from machine to machine over the years. From it, I was
able to cobble something together and I got it to respond. It uses I would love to find out why, but I will have to put that in
the TBD file for now.

But enough about me. I thank you again for kindly sharing your knowledge and
David Ball

Since Mervyn is obviously having a morning snooze !! . . .

I think is probably in the dUFLP ?

It contains this function :

   function GetBDEConfigFileName()


      Romain Strieff

      February 2, 1999

      Returns the name of the currently used BDE Configuration file.

      Minor code fix by Lane Coddington

      2007/05/11 Marc Van den Berghen
         Changed to use structbase getansistring() function in place of
         functions to provide correct behaviour with diacritical characters.


      local cRet, cBuffer

      cBuffer = new structbase(256)
      cRet = cBuffer.getansistring( 53, 128)

   return cRet
