Dear Experts,

I have a small macro by recorder below, it just save the actual excel file to directory D:\ASN \Test.xls

    ChDir "D:\ASN"
    ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="D:\ASN\Test.xls", FileFormat:=xlNormal, _
        Password:="", WriteResPassword:="", ReadOnlyRecommended:=False, _
        CreateBackup:=False

Could you please advise how to assign this saved filename to a variable, which after would be copied by the macro to Sheet2 as clickable hyperlink to cell A1?

thanks,

Here you go
Sub fileName()
   
   Sheets(2).Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=Sheets(2).Range("A1"), Address:=ThisWorkbook.Path, _
        TextToDisplay:=ThisWorkbook.Path

End Sub

Open in new window

Maybe a small addition about the target - when I am working on a file and finally finished, I would like to have a small macro which would know the path of the saved file and would be able to copy to a beside sheet as hyperlink.

thanks,

Sorry about that it is getting late here. This will work for you
Sub fileName()
   Sheets(2).Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=Sheets(2).Range("A1"), Address:=ThisWorkbook.FullName, _
        TextToDisplay:=ThisWorkbook.FullName
End Sub
