Hi

Does anyone know of any good links on using Excel VBA code to automate the merging of data as a pivot table would do?

The advantage of the pivot table is that it's built-in and fast. I'd start by recording a macro where I build a pivot table to my specs, then copy / paste values and reformat as needed.
Another option is to look at Microsoft Query to reproduce some of the pivot analysis through SQL. In my experience, it's a little more complex in VBA as the Microsoft query refers to a specific workbook path and worksheet.
