Excel Power Query data source of text file


I am using Excel Power Query to filter some data. I start by connecting to a text file and see the following in the power formula bar of the power query editor. Why des this not contain the full file path? Is the text file somehow brought into some kind of data set behind Excel?

= Excel.CurrentWorkbook(){[Name="CarSalesData"]}[Content]

So it is strange that I didn't get something similar. Yours looks right.
