Appending (.txt) file to Zip File

Hi,

 

There's a similar thread here but it's sort of left unanswered: Adding extra files to a zip? 

 

I have this script to append to a zip file archive:

import zipfile

print 'appending to the archive'
zf = zipfile.ZipFile('W:\Data\WillCounty_AddressPoint.zip', mode='a')
try:
    zf.write('Z:\Jared\Disclaimer - Final.txt')
finally:
    zf.close()

 

The problem is that I included the whole file path on line 6, so the whole folder (Jared) was appended to the zip and not just the (.txt) file.

 

If I exclude the path and type only the file name it can't be found? 

 

Is there a way to just append the (.txt) file to the zip file?
