Default A stat I\'ve never seen posted...

The number of possible 5-card hands in poker is fairly common knowledge. However, there must necessarily be a smaller number of possible 7-card hands in poker, and I have never seen this stat displayed anywhere. Does anyone have this number and/or know a quick-and-dirty way to calculate it?

p.s. Just in case anyone is wondering why there are fewer 7-card hands than 5-card hands, it is because it is impossible to make a hand like TT442.
