Hi!  I'm trying to write a batch file to open multiple excel files.  The first one opens, but I have to close excel to get the second one to open, etc.  I want them to all open at once.  Can anyone help?  Here is what I have:

"R:\Time Tracking\Work Tracking.xls" &
"Z:\McCartney - Do Not Delete\Daily Tracking.xlsx" &
"Z:\CS Task Tracking - 2011.xlsm"
