directory path field ?
If no, how to create a field for directory path ?

before filename.

Use a \p switch on a filename field to add the path to the filename
i.e. { Filename \p }
There is no field that will provide just the path. If you only want the path
then you will need to use a macro.

Sub InsertPath()
With ActiveDocument
If Len(.Path) = 0 Then .Save
Selection.TypeText .Path & "\"
End With
End Sub

Hi All
Thank for your suggestion, Why in office using Office 2003 have
"Advanced Field Properties" allow input \p switches. In my home Office
2010 without this ?

As far as I can see the insert field dialogs in Word 2003 and 2010 are
virtually indentical. They both offer the option to insert the \p switch.
However it is easy enough to toggle the field - Shift + F9 - and add the
switch. Or use CTRL+F9 and type the whole field content.
