The formula below returns the workbook file name.

   =IF(CELL("filename", A1)="","",MID(CELL("filename", A1),SEARCH("[",CELL("filename", A1))+1,SEARCH("]",CELL("filename", A1))-SEARCH("[",CELL("filename", A1))-1))

This formula should also work to get workbook name and extension

=REPLACE(LEFT(CELL("filename",A1),FIND("]",CELL("filename",A1)&"]")-1),1,FIND("[",CELL("filename",A1)&"["),"")
