    I have a formula in cell a1 that links to an external file. Is there a formula to put in cell b1 that will print just the filename of that external reference? Ive tried using the =cell("filename",a1) but that didnt work. Thanks in advance.

    Not sure if this will work but try:

    =cell("filename",indirect(a1))
