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
