Extract File Names From File Specification

Here is a simple way to extract file names from file specifications:
 Function FName (filespec As String) As String
	Dim i As Integer
	Dim size As Integer
	size = Len(filespec)
	For i = size To 1 Step -1
		If Mid$(filespec, i, 1) Like "[\:]" Then
		FName = Right(filespec, size - i)
		Exit Function
	End If
Next i
End Function
For example:
 File_name = FName("A:\test.dat")
File_name = FName("A:test.dat")
File_name = FName("A:\test\test.dat")
