    Insert Full Filename in Footer (2003)

    I would like to insert the full, complete filename into a footer (all the way from the root drive to the .doc extension). Any ideas absent code?
    Thanks.

    Select View | Header and Footer.
    Click the Switch between Header and Footer button.
    Position the insertion point where you want the filename.

    Select Insert | Field...
    Select FileName in the list of fields.
    Tick the check box "Add path to filename".
    Click OK.

    Alternatively, press Ctrl+F9 to insert field braces { } (don't type { and } yourself).
    Type the following between the braces:
    <code>
    FILENAME p
    </code>
    Press F9 to hide the field code and update the field. The p switch adds the path to the filename.

    Has anyone any idea why the "Insert Auto Text" button would be greyed out? This provides an easier way (at least it did in Word XP Pro.

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    The Insert AutoText button on the Header and Footer toolbar will only be enabled if there are AutoText entries for the Header/Footer styles.
    You can still use Insert | AutoText | AutoText...
