View Full File Path in Title Bar of Word

Guest

Where is the setting that I can change so the full file path shows up in the title bar while I'm in Word? I have the folder properties set in Windows, but can't find the equivalent in Word-and I know there's one since a coworker's Word does this--but she doesn't know how it got that way.

Kim,

You can do this with macros. First you need an AutoOpen() macro that
contains the following code:

Sub AutoOpen()

ActiveWindow.Caption = ActiveDocument.FullName

End Sub

When you open an existing document the Full Name and Path will display in
the titel bar. If you SaveAs an new file, the new path will not dispaly
until you close and reopen the file. There is a way around this using
another macro that replace the normal SaveAs command:

Sub FileSaveAs()

Dialogs(wdDialogFileSaveAs).Show
System.Cursor = wdCursorNormal
ActiveWindow.Caption = ActiveDocument.FullName

End Sub

There's an easier way in Word 2002
Tools/options/all commands. Cursor down and click on "web".
Cursor to right hand column and click on "Address" hold mouse button down and move up to a toolbar at the top of the Word window. Drop it where you want the full address. If you need it longer, while "Options" box is open, click on extreme right border of the address box and move it to the right. Close the options box. Word now always shows the full path of the active document.

dclair,

The lady asked how to get the document path in the application title bar not
an easy way to display the document path. Your suggestions puts the web
toolbar at the top of the page. There is a difference. :)

Now, how do you get this feature (the 2 macros above) to work for every new document ? I tried putting the macros in the Normal.dot, inside "This dicument" entry macro code, but it does not work for a new document based on this Normal.dot then. Do you know how to do it ?
