Sometimes you just need to merge hundreds of Excel files into one.
For CSV files you can easily use the Command Prompt, for Excel you’ll need some VBA scripting.
You may want to copy all worksheets of each workbook into a master workbook.
For example, I have a folder called “sample” under C:\Users\WYMAN\Desktop\sample which contains three workbooks I want to consolidate Workbook a contains one worksheet wb A ws1 Workbook b contains two worksheets: wb B ws1 and wb B ws2 Workbook c contains three worksheets: wb C ws1, wb C ws2, wb C ws3 Create a workbook called consolidate workbooks.xlsm, which only contains a blank worksheet Sheet1 Press ALT F11 to enter into VBE, then insert a new Module, copy and paste the below code Set folder = FSO.
We are trying to cover technique to combine excel files in a single sheet when the data is saved in separate files in a location.
Now think if you open the file one by one and manually combine excel files, how long time will it take?
At the same time, a small piece of macro code will do the trick to merge excel files for you even though you are not a programmer.
All you need to know is how to paste the VBA code and run it.
Compare and Merge runs in an Excel Task Pane and interacts with the current Excel workbook allowing you to select ranges, tables, and lists and instantly compare them and analyze the results.
The results can be merged using the Task Pane where the Add-in provides an intuitive way to view and merge the differences cell-by-cell.
After installation Compare and Merge may be available from the Excel ribbon depending on the version of Excel 2016.
