Thanks Fred
For more general management of my folders I use .c by Nick winter. It is an
excellent utility to automate changing directories however, sometimes I
simply want to move a level higher and so what I have been missing is cd ..
(clearly, I am a product of click and go computers).

Cheers

Ronnie

You can use a global macro to identify your path. Here are some examples:

global static c:/statdata/static/
global pdox c:/statdata/pdox222f/
global sql c:/statdata/sql222f/
global amgen c:/statdata/amgen/
