@himmaugh it sure can be.  The filename is actually inside of brackets using the Cell("Filename") function so the formula below returns the location of those brackets and pulls everything in between them.   

 

=MID(CELL("filename"),SEARCH("[",CELL("Filename"))+1,SEARCH("]",CELL("Filename"))-SEARCH("[",CELL("Filename"))-1)

 

Hope this helps.

If you have these text functions, then you could try:

=TEXTBEFORE(TEXTAFTER(CELL("filename"), "["), "]")
