There are two commands that you can use to retrieve a document's path without having to open it: Open document and AP Select document (4D Pack) command.

Example:

- vRef:=Open document ("";"TEXT";Get Pathname)

The above code returns the document path in a default 4D variable named "document."

- vErr:=AP Select document ($resultPath;"TEXT")

The above code returns the document path to variable in the first parameter ($resultPath).
