B5009 - Why does it not work when I try to concatenate the FileLocation variable?
by - Joseph Ganci
I have seen the light with regard to maintainable code and am using a lot more sub routines. I'm also trying to link to external media (graphics, wave files). It works ok if I type in the
current file path but when I try to use the FileLocation variable and

Keep in mind that FileLocation already contains the backslashes. Take a
look at its value in the Variables dialog box and you'll see that it
ends with the backslashes:
Or whatever your location is. So when you add the filename, you have a
complete path. If you add more backslashes, most systems won't accept
