Automatic file path name on maps

I was wondering if there was a way to automatically have the file path name be placed on a map? Example - say the path was G:\standards\environmental and I saved the map to a new sub folder (called "maps") under environmental. Is there a way I can set it up to automatically change that name on my map to show that new location, G:\standards\environmental\maps.

Mapping Center Answer:

If you are not using PLTS, there is no way to do what you are asking at this time.  The good news is that this is an enhacement that we are working on for a future release of the software!

He responded to my similar question - provided a file named "LayoutSignatureStamp.dll" and the instructions to install.
Get installed....click once....adds pathname/date to map...when changes...click icon again....updates.
May not be exactly what you need...but close !
