Step 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.
Step 2: Type “FIND(“]”,CELL(“filename”)+1,500″. Essentially the formula goes into the file name, finds 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.
