ChDrive Text As String


Text: Any string expression that contains the drive letter of the new drive. If you want, you can use URL notation.

The drive must be assigned a capital letter. Under Windows, the letter that you assign the drive is restricted by the settings in LASTDRV. If the drive argument is a multiple-character string, only the first letter is relevant. If you attempt to access a non-existent drive, an error occurs that you can respond to with the OnError statement.

Error codes:

5 Invalid procedure call

68 Device not available

76 Path not found
