  3. From the "Header & Footer" group, click [Header] or [Footer].
  4. From the drop-down menu, choose a Header or Footer style.
  5. Return to the "Insert" tab. 
  6. From the "Text" group, click [Quick Parts] > Select "Field..."
  7. Under "Field names," select "FileName."
  8. In the "Field properties" section, select a format.
  9. In the "Field options" section, check "Add path to filename." The file name will now appear in the header or footer.
If your saved document has moved locations, you can manually update the file/path name by clicking inside the field and pressing F9. If you want Microsoft to automatically update the field, see section "Method 2: Create a Macro to Automatically Update the Field" of the Microsoft help page
