While this does put the file name in the header or footer, it does not put the path.  I use a cell at the top of my sheets that I include in the File / Page Setup / Sheet / Print Titles / Rows.  Put  =CELL("filename",A1) in the cell and the path/file name will be displayed (along with the sheet tab title).

Click on Page Setup ( Under the File pulldown) then click on Header/Footer.
At this point you can create a custom header or footer with the file name, date, time page no. etc.

I posted this to the Microsoft Excel Newsgroup but got no response.  I was wondering if any of you might know the answer:
Is there any way of inserting the file path and name at the bottom of an excel document (like you can in Word in the footer)?

Thanks in advance,
