Will the fill handle fill 1, 2, 3?
Yes! Type 1 in a cell. Hold down Ctrl while you drag the fill handle.

What program are you using to zip the files?

In the programs I have used, you usually tell it exactly where to put the zip file and what to call it.

For me they usually zip to the same directory (at the end of the file list until its refreshed). If you are doing this in a save/open dialog other than Windows Explorer it may be that files of type zip are not showing (?). -- I usually use XP's zip utility from the right click menu.

I am using WinRAR, under the default setting, the zipped file is at the same directory. So you can check your directory setting, it will indicate where your zipped files are located.
