Print Path And File Name

BY STANLEY ZAROWIN

Q. Microsoft’s instructions may be intuitive to you, dear editor, but not to many others. You stated in your article “ The Best of Technology Q&A ” (Dec.04, page 83): “Here are the steps to create a header/footer….The rest is intuitive—so just follow the screen instructions.” But when I tried to follow the screen instructions for adding the path and file name to an Excel workbook, I was confronted with a bunch of unidentified icons (see screenshot below). Please, which one adds the path and file name?

A. My apologies. So you don’t have to play hide-and-seek, it’s the icon with the yellow folder that has the corner of a piece of paper peeking out (see screenshot below).
