In Excel 2003 you could get the full UNC path in the web toolbar. How can we get the UNC path in Excel 2010?

Thanks.

i've seen that Kevin. Excel 2010 has changed further from 2007.
I should be looking for Document Location in 2010, which I cannot find.

Kevin,

Thanks for the video.

It shows the drive letter path. What I'm after is the UNC path (eg. \\servername\etc\etc\thisfile.xls ) - to send link by email to colleagues on corporate network who maybe mapped to different drive letters.

Any ideas on this?

If you pull the file from a server location, it should have the UNC path.  Attached is a picture that shows the UNC path when I pulled a document from our SharePoint server.  Is this what you were looking for or am I totally missing the boat here?
