Question How to have the location (path) of the Word document on the title bar?

How to have the location (path) of the Word document on the title bar?

Please, see the attached image that shows my question

Simply, we need to know where we are! It is not enough to have only the name of the file in the title bar…we need to have the path (location) as well…

Is there a way to have the path in the title bar?



Thank you

Regards

Jamal

Hi Jamal,

Add the following code to your 'Normal' template:

Code:
Sub AutoOpen()
'Displays the Document Path in the Title Bar
ActiveWindow.Caption = ActiveDocument.FullName
End Sub

A handy little modification. Can we do the same thing for Excel?

While I haven't been able to locate a "template worksheet", I have found that putting the code:

'
' Displays the Workbook Path in the Title Bar
'
ActiveWindow.Caption = ActiveWorkbook.FullName

In the Workbook_Open macro does show the path for that workbook.

For Excel, it's a bit more complicated. First, you need to have a 'Personal' Workbook. If you don't have one, you can create it by recording a macro and telling Excel to store in the 'Personal Macros Workbook'. You can delete the macro (and its code module) later.

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.

Hi Jamal,

No, but there appears to be some code for doing this on the web. See, for example: http://www.accessmonster.com/Uwe/For...ich-DB-is-open
(see especially the post by Allen Browne on 23 Aug 2008).

Hi Jamal,

You might find something ready for use if you ask in the 'Misc' forum here or in a specialist Access forum (recommended).

Partially Solved!!! Showing the file name and path in the title bar of Access!

Just copy and past the Macro and the Module from the file (in the link below) to your Access file. Then the Macro will show the name of the file and the path on the title bar.

http://www.mediafire.com/?267a9atzm6m535u


The problem in this method that we need to copy the Macro and Module to each file to show its name and path.

If we compare this feature with other software like AutoCAD, we get shocked! this feature is an option that we can get it by simple tick!!!!!

regards

Jamal

Microsoft Office is not AutoCAD. Some software developers see some things as important that other software developers don't.

Hi Jamal,

For Word:
Code:
Sub AutoOpen()
'Displays the Document Path & File Size in the Title Bar
With ActiveDocument
  ActiveWindow.Caption = .FullName & ": " & _
  .BuiltInDocumentProperties(wdPropertyBytes) / 1024 & "KB"
End With
End Sub
I'm not sure about Excel.

Thank You Paul. It did work.

And please, how to add comma Separator for the Number (example: 1549 = 1,549)
