I'm the webmaster/ content editor for one of the largest inbound call center providers in the world (clientlogic.com) and I am required to track every web page that is updated. Very often, I have to list 20 to 50 filenames on an Excel spreadsheet. I used to spend so much time copying & pasting each file name. But your program makes it a snap! It has saved me from doing several hours of tedious work each month. Super fast, super simple! Thanks for this outstanding program. Tim Clo, ClientLogic
