Yes. I'd personally put it in the footer, but that is up to you
Insert -> Field
Select Filename and tick the 'Add path to filename' checkbox

For fewer clicks you can go to Insert > Autotext > Filename and path.

Or you can type the field code in manually: press Ctrl-F9 to get the fieldcode braces ({}) and then type "filename \p" within them (no quotes). Select everything within the braces and press F9 to update it.

BTW, the solution suggested by farmer³ will only work if the Autotext includes this common field code as an option, but it may not be available by default in the version you use. If it isn't, you can always add it.
