Question Display workbook filename in title bar and use personal workbook

Using Notepad, save the following code to a text file named 'clsAppEvents.cls'.


Code:
VERSION 1.0 CLASS
BEGIN
  MultiUse = -1  'True
END
Attribute VB_Name = "clsAppEvents"
Attribute VB_GlobalNameSpace = False
Attribute VB_Creatable = False
Attribute VB_PredeclaredId = False
Attribute VB_Exposed = False
Option Explicit
Public WithEvents App As Application
Attribute App.VB_VarHelpID = -1
Private Sub App_WindowActivate(ByVal Wb As Workbook, ByVal Wn As Window)
Application.ActiveWindow.Caption = ActiveWorkbook.FullName
End Sub
Open the vba editor and select your 'Personal' workbook. Then use File|Import to import the 'clsAppEvents.cls' file.

Open your 'Personal' workbook's 'ThisWorkbook' module and the following code to it:
Code:
Option Explicit
Dim AppClass As New clsAppEvents
Private Sub Workbook_Open() 
Set AppClass.App = Application 
 End Sub
Exit & re-start Excel. You can also now delete the 'clsAppEvents.cls' file.



I couldn’t figure out how to display the file location path in Excel.

How can I create the personal workbook?

I moved this into the Excel programming forum. That way others looking for answers will be more likely to find it.

I google it and found the solution below. However, the code needs to be run each time the excel file is open in order to get the path displayed on the title bar

------------------
Sub showCaption()
ActiveWindow.Caption = ActiveWorkbook.FullName
End Sub

------------------

To get the macro to run without manually asking it to run, you need to put it in the ThisWorkbook module and use the built-in names associated with particular events. I would use these ones
Code:
Private Sub Workbook_AfterSave(ByVal Success As Boolean)
  ActiveWindow.Caption = ActiveWorkbook.FullName
End Sub

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
  ActiveWindow.Caption = ActiveWorkbook.FullName
End Sub
