Since Bill2m's spread sheet is for a weekly hold, can we assume that the a screen that does well on a weekly hold, would also do well on a monthly hold?

Don't assume anything. These reports are useful for no more than identifying candidates for research. I would never pick a screen for actual investing from this spreadsheet. If you want to decide on a screen, test it in GTR1 for at least the last 15 years, with all-start-dates. Compare it to as many other candidate screens as you can, and then make your decision.
