I'm a "retired" junior/senior high math teacher. I now do a lot of one on one tutoring, and take my computer to illustrate concepts where possible. I've never had any formal computer training so I'm piecing together Mathematica knowledge as I read posts and get my questions answered. I appreciate the amazing help I've gotten at this website.

comment Creating hyperlinks from a list of file names
Right, that was "theoretical", I wouldn't have folders more than 2 or 3 levels deep... I was just testing to see if it worked. Thanks for your comment.

comment Creating hyperlinks from a list of file names
Thank you, wow, that already looks promising. I tried that, how would I modify so it looks into "sub-folders". The above command is fantastic, but only finds files in the current directory. I appreciate your help!

comment Converting numbers to integers
I had the exact same question, students sending in answers to test questions in an Excel file. Very important that some be integers and some decimals. They would enter them in Excel, but on import, Mathematica changed them all to reals. The above rule was EXACTLY what I needed and solved a big headache in my test grading workflow... thank you!

Wow, that was fast, and I appreciate that answer. Makes sense to me! I was messing around with lists of Primes and Tuples. This does just what I wanted, THANK YOU, I'll just wait a bit and see if there are other answers.

comment How to randomly select and open a notebook using CDFPlayer
Thanks for those comments, and that information. It makes sense that CDFPlayer would not be able to "fish" for file names and open one. I'd still like to find a solution that would choose a question at random, but I can simply link to the files. So my question is answered….
