I could really use a macro that combines multiple (single-worksheet) workbooks into a single workbook, with the worksheets the source workbook becoming individual worksheets in the new workbook.The icing on the cake would be having the source workbook(s) file names become the tab names in the new combined workbook.When you consolidate data, you are assembling data so that you can more easily update and aggregate as needed.For example, if you have an expense worksheet for each of your regional offices, you might use consolidation to roll these figures into a master corporate expense worksheet.To summarize and report results from separate worksheets, you can consolidate data from each into a master worksheet.The worksheets can be in the same workbook as the master worksheet or in other workbooks.See screenshot: Tip: If you just want to use the Pivot Table and Pivot Chart Wizard function at once time, you can use the shortcuts Alt D P keys to open its dialog. Click Next to go to the next step, and check I will create the page fields option in this step. Click Next to go on, and select the first range you need to consolidate in the Range text box, and then click Add button to add this range into All ranges list box, then check 1 option in the How many page fields do you want? Now you can see multiple ranges are consolidated in a Pivot Table in a new worksheet.
Consolidation by category: When the data in the source areas is not arranged in the same order but uses the same labels.Thanks, Shelley, Thanks for sponsoring the development of this macro..has been posted in the tools area of this site for all to download. Thanks, Jeff ==== Hi Jeff, The macro is really great! However I am in need of some guidance in the instalation and execution of this macro.I searched the web and found one, but it was not very useful.Also, what would be the best way to get some (entry-level) training in using the VBA editor?
