I think CAB was just using rootpath as a variable name to store the value "C:/Documents and Settings/bcrouse/Desktop/Library R & D Blocks/")

Ronjonp,

You are correct for an example.  I should have went to that thread to get the answer.  I was think one thing and doing something totally different.  But, I don't understand how rootpath works.

Thank you,

Bob Wahr

*rootpath* is just what he decided to call it.  It could have been

(setq fred "C:/Documents and Settings/bcrouse/Desktop/Library R & D Blocks/")

and worked as well.  *rootpath* just makes it easier to remember what you called that darned path variable.
