This could be done via VBA or VBScript. To answer your question we would need to know more details about what you actually want to do...

Do you truly want all of the information placed into a single worksheet (not workbook)?
How many Excel documents are there, and what is the average number of rows?
Are there multiple sheets in each workbook? Do you want the solution to import all of the sheets?

See the code snippet for a general idea of how this could be done (untested)...
Dim wbDest as workbook

Dim wsDest as worksheet

Dim wbSource as workbook

Dim wsSource as worksheet

Dim FSO as object

Dim Fol as object

Dim fi as object
 

'Get a reference to the destination workbook.

set wbDest = ThisWorkbook

set wsDest = wbDest.worksheets(1)
 

'Create a new FileSystemObject. We'll use this to loop through

'the files.

set fso = createobject("scripting.filesystemobject")

set fol = fso.getfolder("c:\Source Documents")
 

'Loop through the files.

for each fi in fol.files
 

  'Open the workbook and get the first worksheet.

  set wbSource = excel.workbooks.open(fi.path)

  set wsSource = wbsource.worksheets(1)
 

  'Here you would add code to copy the data from one workbook to the other. There are many options on how to do this. The method depends on the answers to the questions above.
 

  'Close the workbook.

  wbSource.close
 

next

Open in new window
