## How to Create the Sheet Name Code in Excel

Here’s a step-by-step guide to creating the sheet name code Excel:

1. Type “CELL(“filename”,A1)”. The cell function is used to get the full filename and path. This function returns the filename of .xls workbook, including the sheet name. This is our starting point, and then we need to remove the file name part and leave only the sheet name.
2. Type “FIND(“]”,CELL(“filename”)+1,500″.  ssentially what the formula does is go into the file name and find the “]” which is where the workbook name ends. From there it moves over one character (+1) to where the sheet name starts. Finally, we add 500 to the end, or any number that is larger than the number of characters a sheet name would realistically have.

Congratulations, you have now displayed the name of a sheet in Excel!
