I would like to have the name of the sheet appear in a text box on my diagram.

I used the name() function but it returned SHEET.45.  What I wanted was the name I assigned to the sheet (Omaha Network).

I already am using FILENAME() and DIRECTORY().

Hi BT,

If the shape has a non-generic name, then NAME() will return something non-sheet-like, e.g.: PC.48, as you've already seen.

You can then use the ID() function to get the numeric part, ie: the 48 in this example. Since "Sheet" is a given, there is no ShapeSheet function that returns the whole "Sheet.48". But you can concatenate:

= "Sheet." & ID()

If the sheet you're referring to is the page itself and the name you want is the name on the page tab, then I think the function you're looking for is PAGENAME().
