Can someone verify that Extract Folder is intended to strip the last folder
from a path? That's what it does, but I read a different behavior into the
name.

Mark,

This only happens if there is no file in the path.

For example, c:\test\yada returns c:\test

Is there a file in the path specification?

No, it was a full path as you illustrated. So absent a file the behavior of
Extract Folder is to strip the last folder from the string. What does it do
if there is a file? IOW, what is the intended use of Extract Folder?
