File Pathname in Word Header or Footer

Sometimes you want to see the full path (i.e. drive, folder, etc, where a document is located), on each page of a document. This was a little hidden away, as I discovered when I wanted it to set it up:

  1. Position yourself in the relevant header or footer (Insert tab, click Header or Footer).
  2. Click the Design tab.
  3.  Click Quick Parts, and then click Field.
  4. In the Field names list, select FileName.
  5. In the dialog box that opens, click on the Add path to filename check box over on the right. Choose OK when finished.
  6. Leave the header.
