Hi,

Is there a way when I have an Excel spreadsheet open - to right click on the screen somewhere, and get Properties. The main objective is I want to see the file's name listed, copy, and paste into a Word document.

Thank you

What version of Excel are you using? There is no right-click option for this as far as I know, but in Excel 2007, if you open the main file menu and go to the Prepare sub-menu, there is a Properties option at the top which will give you the filename and such.

Or you could use the "Save as" option, copy the filename, and cancel the saveas process.
This works for all excel versions
