Thanks to Dave for helping me with this code.

I need to know how to make this code merge all excel files by row, currently it merges them by column going right to left, I just need it to merge each file one below the other.

Thanks!

strFolder = "c:\files"

strNewFile = "c:\newfile.xls"

 

    Set objexcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")

    objexcel.Visible = False

    objexcel.DisplayAlerts = False

 

 

    Set objNewFile = objexcel.Workbooks.Add

    intLastSheet = objNewFile.Worksheets.Count

    If intLastSheet > 1 Then

        For i = 2 To intLastSheet

            objNewFile.Worksheets(2).Delete

        Next

    End If

 

    Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\.\root\cimv2")

 

    Set colFileList = objWMIService.ExecQuery _

                      ("ASSOCIATORS OF {Win32_Directory.Name='" & strFolder & "'} Where " _

                     & "ResultClass = CIM_DataFile")

 

    For Each objFile In colFileList

        If LCase(objFile.Extension) = "xls" Then

            v = v + 1

 

            Set objWorkbook = objexcel.Workbooks.Open(objFile.Name)

            Set objWorkSheet = objWorkbook.Worksheets(1)

            cCount = objWorkSheet.UsedRange.Columns.Count + objWorkSheet.UsedRange.Cells(1).Column - 1

            For c = cCount To 1 Step -1

                If objexcel.CountA(objWorkSheet.Columns(c)) = 0 Then objWorkSheet.Columns(c).EntireColumn.Delete

            Next

 

            If v = 1 Then

                objWorkSheet.Copy , objNewFile.Worksheets(1)

                objNewFile.Worksheets(1).Delete

            Else

                Set objNewSheet = objNewFile.Worksheets(1)

                lastcol = objNewsheet.UsedRange.Columns.Count + objNewsheet.UsedRange.Cells(1).Column - 1

                objWorkSheet.UsedRange.EntireColumn.Copy objNewSheet.Cells(1, lastcol + 1)

            End If

            objWorkbook.Close

 

        End If

    Next

 

    objNewFile.SaveAs (strNewFile)

    objexcel.Quit
