How do we get access to the shortname (without full path) of an attachment when using variable in SQL update query?

I can get it to update my table - but it puts the full pathname in and I just want the shortname (just the filename) when using <%Attachment%>

(I have attachment saving to specific path)
This requires some scripting to extract the file name from the full path. I have attached an example file to this post.

The Email&Parser scripting SDK is here: ... ing-sdk-52

using System;
using System.Text;
using System.IO;
using System.Net.Mail;
using System.Collections.Specialized;
using EmailAndParser.ScriptingInterface;

public class MyAction : ScriptBasedAction
public override bool Run(MailMessage email, NameValueCollection fields)
// Check that we have some attachments saved
if (fields.GetValues("Attachment") == null)
Print("This email has no attachments");
return (false);

// For each value stored in the attachment field
// create a new value with the file name only
foreach (string attachment_path in fields.GetValues("Attachment"))
string filename = Path.GetFileName(attachment_path);
fields.Add("attachment_filenames", filename);
Print("Attachment filename:"+ filename);

// this script finishes successfully
return (true);
