How to get the parent folder of a new list item?

Hi all,

 

Does anyone know how to get the parent folder (name) of a list item on create?  I have a challenge where I have a single list with 10 folders (using for security), and everytime a user creates a new list item, I want to automatically populate a metadata fields with the name of the parent folder.   In a document library I could use column default values, but I can't in a list.

 

Thanks for any help!

 

Cheers,

Troy
