Hi All

I need your help.

How can get rid of character "E" and then change "\" to "/" ?

Please let me know what is the logic to resolve this.

I really appreciate your help.

In most instances, Windows allows you substitute forward slashes for back slashes. Also, if this script runs on the E: drive, you can leave it out of the path. This means you might be able to just use /portal/wps2/wp_profile/temp, and call it a day.
