Hey all,

I work with the same 5 excel worksheets everyday, and I put all of there short cuts on my desktop, and open them all up when needed.

What I want to know is if I can create 1 link, with all 5 links, and then when I click it, it opens all 5 worksheets?

The easiest way would be to make a .cmd batch file with lines like this

start link1
start link2
etc

Make a shortcut to the batch file and put it on your desktop.
Just make sure to put the complete path to the links as in
start c:\users\Owner\Desktop\link1.lnk
start c:\users\Owner\Desktop\link2.lnk

substituting your user name for Owner

The start command launches the file or program in a new process without waiting for it to finish.

OK, I've made a batch file, but since the database is through our job network, it seems to be having problems finding the file, this is the error that I get:

Windows cannot find 'Q:\Plant'. Make sure you typed the name correctly and then try again.

Now keep in mind that the network drive that it is pulling from is the Q: drive, but the home drive for my office computer is your basic C: drive, is there a way around this?

Just checking to see if anyone happen to have a resolution for this issue, problably best to test on a partioned drive, or multi-drive system.
