[SOLVED] Create system variable with path to fex being run

I was wondering what is needed to create a global variable I can access at runtime to tell me the path (domain / folder / filename) of the fex being run? I did a -? & and none of the variables listed include the path.
I have tried IBIMR_fullpath, folder..etc, but they are not recognized variables.

Thanks for your help.

Add these lines using the Client Administration Console under Application Settings / Custom Settings.

<set> IBIMR_fullpath(pass)
<set> MR_FULL_FEXNAME(pass)

Then you will be able to reference them in a fex with &IBIMR_fullpath &MR_FULL_FEXNAME


Thank you for using Focal Point!

Our Admin says that they cannot find that option in the application settings. We are on 81M
