I am creating a number of excel files, naming them, and storing them on a flash drive.  I would like them to appear in a particular order on the flash drive.  Prefacing the file names with numerals will work, but would rather sort them in an order which is independent of the name.  Any suggestions?  Thanks.

This is not an Excel question but rather a Windows Explorer question. You might sort them by any of the date characteristics available?
