How to combine 2 excels into one, and include header from only first one

Hi,

How do we combine 2 excels into one, and include header from only first one.
Is there a any easy way to script it via a bat file.

Thanks!

Do you really mean XLS(x), or rather CSV?

The former requires Office Automation, and that only works with .NET(like) languages (VB, VB Script, PowerShell), The latter is feasible in a .cmd batch, unless there are special characters like ampersand, parens, percent signs, double quotes, in short - very delicate.
