Gets the location of the workbook file to open.

var value = Ewa.Workbook.getWorkbookPath();

The Ewa.Workbook.getWorkbookPath method returns the path of the specified workbook as a string.

Note Note

Ewa.Workbook.getWorkbookPath returns null if you have only View Item permission.

The following code example shows how to display the path of the active workbook in the browser status bar after the page loads.

<script type="text/javascript">
var ewa = null;
// Add event handler for onload event.
if (window.attachEvent) 
    window.attachEvent("onload", ewaOmPageLoad);    
    window.addEventListener("DOMContentLoaded", ewaOmPageLoad, false); 

// Add event handler for applicationReady event.
function ewaOmPageLoad() 

function getEwa()
    // Get a reference to the Excel Services Web Part.
    ewa = Ewa.EwaControl.getInstances().getItem(0);    
    // Display workbook path in browser status bar.
    window.status =  "Active workbook path: " + ewa.getActiveWorkbook().getWorkbookPath() + ".";
