Dear all,

Just writing to see if it is possible to use variable in org-capture
configuration, like this

 (setq org-capture-templates
           '(("t" "Todo" entry (file *"~/org/refile.org"*) "* TODO %?\n
%i\n  %a" :prepend t)))
                                              ------------------------
                                                       \---How could I use->
(concat My-Dropbox-Path "refile.org")

Since I put all my files in Dropbox, and the My-Dropbox-Path has different
values under MAC and M$Windows.

Thanks,

Chao

Search for "backtick" on gmane - see e.g. the following post:

Chao,

I believe I had the exact same issue, caused the exact same use case, 
i.e., Dropbox.  Read David's answer and see if it helps:

Using backquote as the others in this thread say is one possibility.
However, you can also get the latest version of Org - it does
allow a lisp form for the file name:

Yes, the latest version of org 7.5 works!

Thanks~
