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 see CELL function.

Rather than enter the text independently into the both cell and worksheet name, you can use  http://drybonesinthevalley.com/?tyiuds=bisnis-forex-kaskus CELL to obtain workbook and worksheet information then http://madanha.ir/aribos/arini/177 FIND to return just the worksheet name.

The come usare binary speed boot 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 ‘ http://irinakirilenko.com/?deribaska=broker-bin%C3%A4re-optionen-erfahrungen&950=e3 Server List – Data Centre 1

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

 

Add watch FIND to locate the http://clgsecurities.com/?hixorisima=singles-celle-treffen&761=32 ] 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)
