Thanks for your reply.  After playing with your script I added the  
following and
was able to use it as a way of determining the filepath for any text  
file anywhere
on our network.

  answer file "Choose network file..."
  put it into someFile
  IF someFile is empty THEN exit to top
  put the longfilepath of it into message box

Thanks again for you help!
