    or they set up something like a batch file to ZIP the contents of a folder (the 4 excel files) and the new ZIP file (test.zip) was placed in the same folder at the excel files.

    run the batch file again and it makes a *new* test.zip that includes the 4 excel files *and* the old test.zip.

    run again and again and again etc etc etc and you will end up with a ZIP file *much* larger than the original.

    Grantwhy >> who is *NOT* at all speaking from personal experience of backing up files and wondering why each time the backup is run the back file significantly increasing in size when no any new files were being added/created :-p
