Default VBA for Excel 2000...HELP!

This may not be the proper place to post this question, but I'm out of ideas of other places to post it. I am NOT a programmer, but find myself in a situation where I must write a macro in VBA for Excel. I'd use the help function to get me through this issue, but it's not loaded on my computer, and my employer unwittingly threw our Office disk away, so I'm stuck.

I need to write a macro to add the file path to Excel worksheet footers. I found one place online that told me how to do this, but it just doesn't work for me. The macro I was given is as follows:

  UpdateFooter()ActiveSheet.PageSetup.LeftFooter = ActiveWorkbook.FullName
End Sub

The issue is, when I enter this information, it gives me errors telling me that everything in the first part of the macro is expected at the end. As I said, I can't access "help" to figure this out.

If anyone has ANY information that can help me, I would deeply appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

Everything works out in the end.  If it hasn't worked out, it isn't the end.

Insert the following code in the module named ThisWorkBook

Private Sub Workbook_BeforePrint(Cancel As Boolean)
   ActiveSheet.PageSetup.LeftFooter = ThisWorkbook.FullName
End Sub

Hope it will help you.

Another possibility. Under Files - PageSetup you should be able to edit your Footer. Full path should be something like this:


However, asking for a macro, you may already have tried it!
