Default Cell names = sheet names

A simple workaround
Put that formula in some out of the way cell (IV1) of Sheet3
In Sheet1 B3 enter =Sheet3!IV1
Remember the CELL function need the file to have saved at least once

The following formula works great if you want the cell name to be the
current
sheet.

=MID(CELL("filename",a1),SEARCH("]",CELL("filename",a1))+1,1024)

Is there a way to reference a different sheet? For example is there a way
for Sheet 1 Cell B3 to show the name of Sheet 3?

Thanks for you help
