You should be able to use:
&[Date]
for the date.

And you can use:
&[File]
for the file name.

Sub putfooter()

    With Sheets("Your Sheet name here").PageSetup
     
        .CenterFooter = Format(Now(), "mm/dd/yy") & " " & ThisWorkbook.Name
        
        
    End With
    
End Sub

What type of Object are you Exporting?
What format are you exporting it to?
How are you performing the Export (manually or via code)
"and print it with preset alignment."
?
...Can you explain exactly what this means?

Please be specific.


I will presume by what little info on this you posted, that you want some Access Data exported to Excel?

If so, this can easily be done in a Report.

Create the report from your source data.
In the Report footer insert a textbox control and set the control source to: =Date()
Set the name to: txtDate

Then in the Report footer insert another textbox control but leave the control source blank.
Name this control: txtDBName
Then on the Format event of the Report Footer, put code like this:
    Me.txtPath = CurrentProject.Name

See the attached sample.

Study it carefully and I am sure you will be able to adapt it to work in your database.
