Excel Facts

Workdays for a market open Mon, Wed, Friday?
Yes! Use "0101011" for the weekend argument in NETWORKDAYS.INTL or WORKDAY.INTL. The 7 digits start on Monday. 1 means it is a weekend.

Assuming you're running Windows in some flavor (3.x through WindowsXP), or Windows NT...

Use the "Find" utility (found in the Start menu).

Search your hard drive -- typically, "C:", but might be additional letters. Search for *.xls

From the list returned, double-click on each file, do your thing, then close it. The search utility will stay active on your system-- see your taskbar-- for you to amuse yourself with the next one.

See any good Windows book ("Windows for Dummies" are very good).

Good luck!
