# Get workbook name only

If you want to get the workbook name only (i.e. the file name without path or sheet name) you can do so with a rather long formula that uses the MID function along with the FIND function.

### How the formula works

The cell function is used to get the full file name and path:

CELL("filename",A1)

The result looks like this:

path[workbook.xlsm]sheetname

At the highest level, the MID function simply extracts the file name from the path and sheet. The starting position is calculated with FIND:

The number of characters to extract is also calculated with FIND:
