These two UDF's will place the name of a Workbook into a cell, or the Workbooks File path and name. It also shows the Excel CELL function returning the Workbooks name, file path and active sheet name. Neither of the first two examples take any arguments. The last one is used in place of nesting the MID and other functions with the CELL function to get the sheet name.
