Set Caption on inserted OLE Object

I have been able to insert a excel file as an OLE object, the icon shows up and with DisplayAsIcon set the object does not lose the icon. The only thing I am missing is showing the text under the icon. How can I achieve this? I am using the latest version of Cells as of today. See attached screenshot. The created one is the small icon on the left and the one that was inserted from excel is on the right. The text (file path) on the right one is what I am trying to replicate to the left one.
