rgb192,

Just open Merge-CSV-s-V2.xlsm and click on the blue button.

Alternatively, simply opening the attached version causes the macro to run. So you could leave this on your Desktop and just double-click on it to do the job.

Edit: Please let me know which folder the CSV's are in and I'll update the macro - currently it looks for them in "D:\". If you prefer, the macro could prompt you each time for the folder.

Edit2: I've just remembered that there's a bug in at least some versions of Excel for users whose system date is not in "mm/dd/yyyy" format - if a macro reads in a CSV file with a date column then the date is messed up. What format is your system date?

Edit3: The blue button in the attached now points to the correct macro.

Hi, rgb192.

Please see attached. Let me know if you want the second and subsequent files to skip a header row.

The code is...
Option Explicit

Sub Process_CSV()
Dim xCSVFileName  As Variant
Dim xCSVFile      As Workbook
Dim xBook         As Workbook
Dim xSheet        As Worksheet
Dim xOut_New_Last As Long

Set xSheet = Sheets.Add
xOut_New_Last = 0

Application.ScreenUpdating = False

    For Each xCSVFileName In Array("datafile0.csv", "datafile1.csv", "datafile2.csv", "datafile3.csv", "datafile4.csv", "datafile5.csv", "datafile6.csv", "datafile7.csv", "datafile8.csv", "datafile9.csv", "datafile10.csv", "datafile11.csv", "datafile12.csv")
        Set xCSVFile = Workbooks.Open("D:\" & xCSVFileName)
    
        ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Copy Destination:=xSheet.Range("A" & xOut_New_Last + 1)
        xOut_New_Last = xSheet.Range("A1").SpecialCells(xlLastCell).Row
        
        xCSVFile.Close savechanges:=False
    Next
  
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
  
End Sub

Open in new window

rgb192,

The attached skips row 1 for all files except the first. The code is...
Option Explicit

Sub Merge_CSVs()
Dim xCSVFileName As Variant
Dim xCSVFile     As Workbook
Dim xBook        As Workbook
Dim xSheet       As Worksheet
Dim xOut_Last    As Long
Dim xCSV_Last    As Long
Dim xCount       As Long

Set xSheet = Sheets.Add

Application.ScreenUpdating = False

    For Each xCSVFileName In Array("datafile0.csv", "datafile1.csv", "datafile2.csv", "datafile3.csv", "datafile4.csv", "datafile5.csv", "datafile6.csv" _
                                 , "datafile7.csv", "datafile8.csv", "datafile9.csv", "datafile10.csv", "datafile11.csv", "datafile12.csv")
        Set xCSVFile = Workbooks.Open("D:\" & xCSVFileName)

        xCount = xCount + 1
        If xCount <> 1 Then xOut_Last = xSheet.Range("A1").SpecialCells(xlLastCell).Row
        xCSV_Last = ActiveSheet.Range("A1").SpecialCells(xlLastCell).Row
        
        ActiveSheet.Range(IIf(xCount = 1, 1, 2) & ":" & xCSV_Last).Copy Destination:=xSheet.Range("A" & xOut_Last + 1)
        
        xCSVFile.Close savechanges:=False
    Next
  
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
  
End Sub
