cat *.csv > combined.csv

Do all have column headings?

The columns heading can be different ..
So need to put each sheet of the each CSV file in to one excel file.

1.  CSV files with one sheet each.
2.  put each sheet of the each CSV file in to one excel file.

Based on your requirement, there is no need to covert each csv into excel file.
MS Excel can open csv file directly.

If you simply want to have them all concatenated into a single file, there is no need for a shell script.  The directive I posted will do it for all files in the directory that have the .cvs suffix will be combined into the single file which you then can load into excel..

I assume you need an XLS outputfile. If so: write a Perl program using perl functions to read and split the CSV lines and John MacNamara's excelent WriteExcel CPAN lib to create the Excel file.
