Excel Tips…How to display the Worksheet name in a cell

I was wondering this week how to automatically link the contents of a cell to the worksheet name and found that you can use the http://blossomjar.com/pacinity/2575 CELL function.

Rather than enter the text independently into the both cell and worksheet name, you can use  follow site CELL to obtain workbook and worksheet information then http://creatingsparks.com.gridhosted.co.uk/?endonezit=free-binary-options-trading-software-download'A=0 FIND to return just the worksheet name.

The http://thesportsinjuryclinic.org/?platform=hootsuite CELL function provides detail associated with the defined cell including file name and worksheet name

A1 is used as it is the first cell in the worksheet.

A < A function >
1 folderpath\[filename]worksheetname =CELL(“filename”,A1)


So if I have a worksheet called ‘ opções binárias é seguro Server List – Data Centre 1

A < A function >
1 folderpath\[filename]Server List – Data Centre 1 =CELL(“filename”,A1)


Add http://stadsmagasinet.se/goteborg/tag/olivedalsgatan/ FIND to locate the http://mustangcipowebaruhaz.hu/?sisd=auto-opzioni-binarie-answer&9e1=a7 ] and only return data after – resulting in just the worksheet name:

A < A function >
1 Server List – Data Centre 1 =MID(CELL(“filename”,A1),FIND(“]”,CELL(“filename”,A1))+1,255)

+1 means to start with the first character after the ], the 255 references the last character to return:

A < A function >
1 Server List =MID(CELL(“filename”,A1),FIND(“]”,CELL(“filename”,A1))+1,11)


  • The formula will not return valid results if you use it in a new workbook that hasn’t been saved. You need to save the workbook, close it then reopen so the information can be returned by the CELL function successfully.
  • It also will not work properly if the workbook or worksheet name contains the right bracket ‘ http://mhs.se.loopiadns.com/om-mhs/klubbtidningar/artikelindex-mhm/ ]
