# printing a worksheet name in a cell

#### law

##### New Member
On my spreadsheet, cell A1 has the following formula: =cell("filename). The result is:

How would I get the phrase "Summary Sheet", to appear in Cell A1? Also, is there a formula that can just print the name of a particular worksheet in a workbook?

Thanks for all of your help

### Excel Facts

Which came first: VisiCalc or Lotus 1-2-3?
Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston debuted VisiCalc in 1979 as a Visible Calculator. Lotus 1-2-3 debuted in the early 1980's, from Mitch Kapor.
Try:

=MID(CELL("filename",A1),FIND("]",CELL("filename",A1),1)+1,100)

Here's a couple ways.

1 variation of the find "]" approach:
=RIGHT(CELL("filename"),LEN(CELL("filename"))-FIND("]",CELL("filename")))

A UDF using the formula: =SheetName(A1)

Function SheetName(Cell As Range)
sheetname = Cell.Parent.Name
End Function

Thanks Asala42 and Ricky. Both formulas do the trick!!!!
