Hi - I'm hoping there is a very simple solution for this one...

I would like the dbase path and filename to automatically print at the bottom of the report without having to hardcode it.  Excel and Word has % variables to add to the headers and footers.  I can't seem to find that same set of options in Access.  Is there something I can type in to have it print these for me without hardcoding the full path and filename?

THANKS!!

I tried this in Access 2010.  Code is not recognized.

What works in Access 2010?
