Updating a query

I am using MS office 2000. I use query to import a list of client names and their individual contract numbers from a billable report which is in a separate excel workbook.
EX:

15 ABC
30 Group
12 Joe Smith Co.

I then take this info and put it into a chart. My problem is that each new week, I create a new billable report worksheet. Currently my query data is coming from 071407 but now I want it to come from 072807 and so on and so forth. How can I change this? (And if so, automatically would be great). Thanks!

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.

How many rows, approximately, are on each billable report worksheet?

If there aren't that many it may be helpful to restructure your data into one long list rather than separated into worksheets.

You could keep track of the week using column A rather than using a tab name.

Then the query would always be pointing to the same sheet (so you woruldn't have to edit the query itself)a nd you could use the week identifier as one of the query parameters.

70 rows by 20 columns doesn't seem very large to me. I'd highly recommend using one very long list.
