Here is a little macro which might help you.
It determines how many linked objects there are and loops through them finding the source location, then printing them to the sheet in column 10.

It's just an example for you to read though and adapt to your own requirements.

[code]
Sub PrintObjectSource()
    If ActiveSheet.Shapes.Count Then
        For i = 1 To ActiveSheet.Shapes.Count
            ActiveSheet.Shapes(i).Select
            temp = Right(Selection.SourceName, Len(Selection.SourceName) - InStr(1, Selection.SourceName, "|"))
            ActiveSheet.Cells(i, 10).Value = Left(temp, Len(temp) - 2)
        Next i
    End If
End Sub
[/code]

Enjoy!
