I've got a question relating to using Javascript on an Intranet. I
have a directory with a list of files in the format  week36.xls,
and I want to write a script that will scan all the files in the
directory and select the one with the highest week number then display
in the browser window. A brief search hasn't revealed any code to do
this so I just want to know if it is possible and what the function
names are that would be involved.
