I made a project path like the above.

and I add File Input Device.
I want to set value of File Details "..\CommonData\input.bt".
but It set "D:\WMProjects\CommonData\input.bt".


Works fine for me. Did you uncheck "Use absolute path for file name" and are you working in a project that has been saved at least once?

I unchecked "Use absolute path for file name". and I saved.

Following is my computer spec.

OS : windows 7 Professional Korean 64bit
WM version : 2.2 Professional Edition SITE LICENSE

CPU : Intel Core 2 Quad Cpu [email protected]
rem : 4GB
remain HDD : 11GB
Graphic : NVIDIA Geforce GTS 250

If my project path is following. It works well. The File Details value set "CommonData\input.bt".

Looks like relative paths don't work when files are in another folder. I.e. folders that are outside the folder the tmd is in.
Thanks for reporting this!

Have you tried setting "Default Relative File Path" in the Project Settings to your ReportProject folder? That should do the trick.
