Hello,

I am a teacher and would like to save my lesson plans in order so I can reference them easily. I have tried numerous naming conventions but haven't been able to achieve exactly what I want. It may not even be possible. Specifically, I create weekly lesson plans and want to save them in order by week,month, year. This would make it much easier to search for a specific lesson plan. The way it is, windows saves everything in alphabetical order so files are not sequential.

I am running Word 2003 on Windows XP. If anyone can help, I would appreciate it so much.

Thx

The file naming is going to have to start with data that you want first, i.e., week-month-year-SubjectMatter.

The week and month are going to have to be NUMBERS.

I save files by date, so give this a try.

For Week 1, August 2009: 2009-08-Week01 File Name.doc
For Week 3 September 2009: 2009-09-Week03 File Name.doc
