create a folder in C drive name is Import

put all of your csv files there,  then create a new workbook and name the first sheet "MasterCSV"  then insert a vba module in this new workbook and then run it. it will import all of the csv files in that folder into the mastercsv sheet.

Option Explicit

Sub ImportCSVsWithReference()
'Author:    Jerry
'Date:      10/16/2010
' Import all CSV files from a folder into a single sheet
'           adding a field in column A listing the CSV filenames

Dim wbCSV   As Workbook
Dim wsMstr  As Worksheet:   Set wsMstr = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("MasterCSV")
Dim fPath   As String:      fPath = "C:\Import\"    'path to CSV files, include the final \
Dim fCSV    As String

Application.ScreenUpdating = False  

fCSV = Dir(fPath & "*.csv")         'start the CSV file listing

    Do While Len(fCSV) > 0
      'open a CSV file
        Set wbCSV = Workbooks.Open(fPath & fCSV)
      'insert col A and add CSV name
        Columns(1).Insert xlShiftToRight
        Columns(1).SpecialCells(xlBlanks).Value = ActiveSheet.Name
      'copy date into master sheet and close source file
        ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Copy wsMstr.Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(1)
        wbCSV.Close False
      'ready next CSV
        fCSV = Dir
    Loop
 
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Open in new window
