I am using Word 2010. I want to automatically show the document path in the footer of a Word document after it is saved. Is there a way to automate this.

I have looked into inserting the Word field into normal.dotm for it but it inserts as text not as a fields so the new document is showing the path to normal.dotm not itself.

Somehow this should have been easier than this. I cannot figure it out despite 45 minutes of googling.
