Filename property (FileBlob)

Holds the filename.


A String value. Holds the name of the file.


  • Basic
object.Filename [= value]
The Filename(object,value) syntax has these parts:
objectAn expression evaluating to an object of type FileBlob
valueA String value.


The Filename property holds the name of the file on disk where the Blob stores its data. If not specified, FileBlob will create a temporary file (in a temporary windows folder) which will be deleted when FileBlob is destroyed.

You can specify your own filename if you want FileBlob to read data from your file, or to store data to your file.

When you set this filename, the AutoDelete property is changed internally to False (meaning your file will not be deleted when the Blob is destroyed).
