i want the caption to change with the path address of the active workbook whenever i open any workbook.
 

Excel Facts

VLOOKUP to Left?
Use =VLOOKUP(A2,CHOOSE({1,2},$Z$1:$Z$99,$Y$1:$Y$99),2,False) to lookup Y values to left of Z values.

Application.Caption = ActiveWorkbook.FullName
or
Application.Caption = ActiveWorkbook.Path
Depending on what you want...
I would place these in Workbook_Activate so the
caption would change whenever a workbook is activated.

To do that you could put the code in your PERSONAL.XLS or an Add-In that is installed each time you start Excel.

You will need a Class Module to use Application level events. In Help choose the WorkbookActivate Event and click the link "Using Events with the Application Object". That tells you how.
