People often want to add the location of their document--the filename and the file path--to the header or footer. In Word 2010, you can do this by using field codes. It sounds more complicated than it is, so let's take a look.
For more information on field codes, see Insert and format field codes in Word.

How about the auto-update feature for headers/footers? Once upon a time if you put the filename in the footer, it would automatically update if you changed the filename... now it doesn't seem to do that. Is there a way to fix this?
Wow! I am glad I read this because although I already knew how to do it, I thought there must be an easier way, since in Word 2003, it was right on the Header & Footer Toolbar, in Insert AutoText. I'm suprised it wasn't added to the Quick Parts Gallery.
Wow! I can't believe how complicated they've made it, it used to be so easy to add the file path to the footer...
This is mind-bogglingly stupid. I use file names as headers all the time, as an easy way of distinguishing documents, on screen or printed, and this is now made incredibly complicated for no reason that makes any sense. Joannie (or anyone), can you explain why something that was both useful and easy to use is now comprehensively neither?
Agreeing with dianaAR21 and anonymous, et al, they're right on, this is really ,really stupid!!
Worse than that, the instructions in Help instruct the user to do something that can't be done!! :
Help, on Add the file name to the header...:
"On the insert tab, in the header and footer group, click header..."
"Click Edit Header...."
"On the insert tab, click Quick Parts"
When I carefully do that, there is no "Quick Parts" on the Insert tab!!! So Help is instructing the user to do something that is impossible!! How stupid is that??
Hello Joannie, may i ask how to default such setting, so everytime i print document there will have file name and path on it?
I have office 2010 and windows 7
How can I insert a filename to my footer
as I don't see the word insert on to op the internet page
No less counter-intuitive and senseless than anything else I would expect from Microsoft. Wish my office would start using Macs.
