I think it would be useful for the location and name of the screen be captured to be included in the capture information.
For example: C:\data\excel\counties\Population.xlsx

I think you can partially get there today with a custom capture profile.
Just in case you were unaware of the options:



Apologies if you were already aware you could use these options.

Cheers... Rick :)

Didn't we have this identical suggestion a few days ago from someone else?  Anyway, building on Rock's suggestion, here's an example of what you can get today.  Take note of the Custom Text field, just beneath the 4 options in Rick's screenshot:



I used the custom text field to enter the file name manually.  That's not ideal but given that before the file is saved for the first time it doesn't have a meaningful file name (Book 1, Book 2 etc) I am not sure that anything more meaningful could be scraped from Excel.

Beware though that the custom text field persists across captures and sessions. so the old information can catch you out!

LOL, no worries. Because my last name is Stone, I've been referred to as "Ricky Rock" a good bit of my life. LOL

It's not quite identical, but it's along the same line.
