Excel Sheet combine question

Posted on 2007-04-11
Last Modified: 2011-09-20
I have an excel workbook with 10 sheets of data. The data is uniform in all sheets, i.e. they have the same column heading and data type in each heading. Is there an easy way that i can combine them all into one sheet without having to cut and paste from one into the other?

There isn't an EASY way that I know of. But if you post more details (columns used, etc.) we can write code to do it.

How many sheets are we talking about? How many rows of data? Keep in mind, you are limited to 65,536 rows.

I thought there maybe an easier solution than coding.
It seems like something you would expect to be available in the merge or combine functionality.
These are my column headings
the number of rows would never exceed the limit you posted in the last thread.
