    Is there a procedure to input a Filename into a cell. I want to see the filename in some cell, not in the footer/header.

    Is there some function that I'm not aware of?

    Thanks

    Put the following in the cell where you want to show the filename.

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

    Notes:
    1. The file must be saved with a name.
    2. The reference to a cell A1 is required.
