Compares Path 1 to Path 2 and returns a relative path between the two paths, the common path between the two paths, and a Boolean that indicates whether the paths are on the same path hierarchy level.
For example, if Path 1 is C:\folder\sub\test.txt and Path 2 is C:\folder\sub2\dir\test2.doc, Relative Path from 1 to 2 returns ..\..\sub2\dir\test2.doc. Common Path returns C:\folder, and Path 2 Relative to Path 1 returns FALSE because you have to go up two levels in the path hierarchy to get to the common path between Path 1 and Path 2.
|Path 1 specifies the first path.|
|Path 2 specifies the second path.|
|error in describes error conditions that occur before this node runs. This input provides standard error in functionality.|
|Relative Path from 1 to 2 returns the relative path you have to take on disk to get from Path 1 to Path 2.|
|Common Path returns the part of the absolute path that Path 1 shares with Path 2.|
|Path 2 Relative to Path 1? is TRUE if Path 1 is on the same directory level as Path 2. Otherwise, this output is FALSE.|
|error out contains error information. This output provides standard error out functionality.|
