You probably want a Working Directory Reference Number, which is mistakenly
called a Volume Reference Number in several places (a true Volume Reference
Number is actually associated with a volume (a disk), not with an individual
folder).

You can use the FOLDER function to do this.  It's as easy as this:

wdRefNum% = FOLDER(fullPathName$, 0)
