    retrieve path and filename (2003)

    What is the quickest and easiest way of retrieving office documents filename and pathname?

    Is there a "one-click" tool to copy into the clipboard pathname and filename?

    I've been using the /File/Properties , but for lots of files, I find it very time consuming.

    Thanks, Guillermo

    If you need to do this for all files (perhaps of a certain type) in a folder, you could write VBA code to process the file names. The exact code depends on what you want to do.

    In Word it is very easy to display the document path and filename on a toolbar, from which you can cut and paste at your leisure.

    Tools > Customize > Commands
    under categories on the left choose Web
    drag the Address from the right half of the dialog box to the main menu, to the right of all the menu commands
