The subject really says it all, what I am trying to do is retrieve the filename of the workbook and paste it to an absolute cell.

Thanks!

How can you turn a range sideways?
Copy the range. Select a blank cell. Right-click, Paste Special, then choose Transpose.
How about just using the CELL formula?
=CELL("filename")

This returns the following for my current file:
D:\Data\Excel\[test.xls]Sheet1

is there a way to do it without the path showing? I'd like to use the mid formula, but the path may change.

thanks for the help!

Hi Joe


Try this (there may be a simpler way of doing it, but this does work):

=MID(CELL("filename",A1),FIND("[",CELL("filename",A1))+1,FIND("]",CELL("filename",A1))-FIND("[",CELL("filename",A1))-1)


Regards

Richard
