Display the Document panel
Yet another way to view the path of the active workbook is to display the Document Properties
panel. Choose File
Show Document Panel. The Document Properties panel is
displayed above the Formula bar. Unfortunately, the Document Properties panel takes up quite a
bit of space, and it can’t be moved or resized.
Info
Properties
You might want to add the Properties control to your Quick Access toolbar. See the instructions
in the previous section. In this case, choose File Tab in Step 2 and Properties in Step 3. The
Properties control toggles the Document Panel display, so you can click once to see the
workbook’s path and then click again to hide it.
Use a macro
If you’re comfortable using VBA macros, enter this Sub procedure in a VBA module in your
Personal Macro Workbook:
Sub ShowPath()
MsgBox ActiveWorkbook.Path
End Sub
Then, add the ShowPath macro to your Quick Access toolbar. When this procedure is executed,
the path of the active workbook is displayed in a message box.
