Re: Default folders for importing and exporting date


is this what you are looking for?

MyNotebookDir = 
  DirectoryName@ToFileName@("FileName" /.
    NotebookInformation[EvaluationNotebook[]] /. {"FileName" -> ""});
If[MyNotebookDir != "", SetDirectory[MyNotebookDir]]

MyNotebookDir is the directory of the currently evaluated
notebook file (empty string for "untitled" notebooks);
the working directory is set accordingly.
