Re: your opinion on this link labeling please

I'm now getting the month with the first file for that particular month. I'm
thinking this is the a little but more complicated and possibly that the
cells should be marked with scope for the rows that that particular cell is
related to so for example you have two or three files and among each of
those months go back to the one cell to look for their particular header
row. Otherwise on the first row of the month it does say what month the
files are related to.
