dpkg-query --showformat

Trying to use --showformat to get information from the package database. I'm fine with everything EXCEPT the Filename. All the other items I've tried, the syntax "${Package} . . . ${Version} etc" the "variable" matches the tag on the lines of the available file --
Package: ...
Version:   ....

However, ${Filename} does not output anything -- always blanks.

So, what's the magic? I'm running short on goats here ( and the smell of burnt goat hair is really annoying ).
