if you are familiar with VBA you can use

Code:
Range("A1") = Thisworkbook.fullname '(For file path and workbook name)

or

Range("A1") = left(Thisworkbook.fullname,Len(Thisworkbook.fullname)-Len(Thisworkbook.name))
The latter will give you the file path without the workbook name included.

Hope this helps
Thanks
James

=SUBSTITUTE(LEFT(CELL("filename",A1),FIND("]",CELL("filename",A1))-1),"[","")
