I've got UNION working correctly to combine different tabs of an Excel workbook into a single dataset.  It ain't fast, but it works.

But now I need to add data from additional workbooks.  I've found the many past threads here about using UNION and UNION ALL with SQL tables, and my application is the most common one: combine current order data with archived history data.

I can't see a way in CR to combine the two.  Does the SQL language have a way to do it, which I haven't found?  Any other suggestions?

Worst case, I can take alllllll the different history worksheets and add them into one big many-tabbed spreadsheet.  But I'd like something slicker.

(And yes, we're working on getting the data into SQL Server.)
