Return partial file path in dynamic text

Question asked by OZGeo on Jul 21, 2015

Investigating some automation of our maps and want to put the mxd file location on the map. All our mxds are stored in folder (+/- subfolders) with the folders 5 deep in the file path e.g. mxd might be in 

 

G:\aaaa\bbbb\cccc\dddd\eeee\BASE_FOLDER\SUBFOLDER\mxd_name

 

where there will always be the BASE_FOLDER which is a project identifier - the SUBFOLDER part might exist for a major project but not for all projects. I can insert the full path as dynamic text, but would prefer to NOT SHOW the part G:\aaaa\bbbb\cccc\dddd\eeee\. There will always be the same number of nested folders.

 

Can anyone offer any solutions (even if it is a hack).
