CHDIR

Changes the default directory for the specified drive.

Syntax

CHDIR directory_name

Comments

directory_name is a string expression containing the desired directory name. This value is limited to a maximum of 64 characters.

To change the default directory for a drive other than the current, precede the pathname with a disk drive letter and a colon.

CHDIR does not change the default drive.

You cannot abbreviate CHDIR.

Example

To make sales the working directory on Drive A: and inventory the working directory on Drive B: (assume A: is the default drive), type the following commands:

CHDIR "SALES" 
CHDIR "B:INVENTORY"
