issue with using a variable for path name

14 views (last 30 days)
I tried to save my path address to a variable and use the variable as CD funtion but i am getting an error.
Path = ('H:\dcx_cpe\CRANE\Truck Data');
I am getting the below error.
Cannot CD to H:\dcx_cpe\CRANE\Truck Data\Path (Name is nonexistent or not a directory).
How do i fix this issue?

Do not CD just to import/export data files. CD is slow and makes debugging harder.
Every function that import/exports datafiles accepts absolute/relative filenames. You should use absolute/relative filenames.

avoid using 'Path' as variable name as path() is a function.
