    Hi Pradeep,

    You're not going to be able to get that information using a formula, it's going to need to be VBA. And honestly, it will take a bit of research to figure out how.

    If you'd like to search and find any articles in VB.NET for how to get the info, we can certainly help translate that to VBA and implement it for you.
