It may be of no use here, but in Toolbook I would track backward through the
filename (ie from the end to the beginning), a letter at a time, putting
that letter into a variable (called eg: pic_filename) until I reached a
slash, at which point I would have the filename stored in pic_filename.

Can that be applied to what you're doing?
