In Calc, I can include the file name in the footer.

I would like to do that in Writer, but do not see how.

Found it. While there is not a "Field" choice under the "Insert" tab, there is an Icon on the tool bar. When I hovered the cursor over each Icon, one shows "Insert Field", whereupon instructions provided by RGB-es worked.

Insert → Field → More Fields → Document tab → pick "File name" and the format you want (full file name, without extension, path, path + file name)

Thanks for your quick reply! When I select "Insert", there is no "Field" choice available. Using Version: (x64)
