 fullPathName is a value pulled out of a config XML file installed
with the client app, pointing to where the reports are located, so
the DEV location of reports would match up with looking at the DEV
db. I leaned on a couple environment logistics, mostly that this app
is used by <10 people, the databases are all on the same db server,
and this app is VERY low on the totem pole around here, so much so
that I've had to do quite a bit of work just to find docs, create a
testable environment, identify subject matter experts, etc etc. In
other words, garbage in (I cleaned up a little) garbage out, and I'm
moving on. The suggestion is spot on, though, and had this been
higher use and/or visibility, I would have made things more dynamic.
But eh, not this one :)

Thanks for letting me babble
