      I figured it out, it just wasn't clear to me how to do it. The help is of very little value in understanding how GetDocName is supposed to function .

      To get the path without the file name, you use:
      ^!Set %Path%=^$GetPath(^$GetDocName$)$

      This should be your answer!

      In NoteTab Help...


      Returns the path segment of FileName (always ends with backslash).
      Since version 4.8, this function works both on Windows file names and URLs.
