HI

is that what you are looking for?

In Excel, On the Data tab, in the Data Tools group, click Consolidate.

You can consolidate multiple sheets all together.

Here are more options available:

Another way could be to consolidate all the sheets with an Excel Macro. You just need to adjust it for your needs.

But for me, i really like the Consolidate in the Data tab. It does the job very good.

Sub Consolidate_Excel()
    Dim J As Integer

    On Error Resume Next
    Sheets(1).Select
    Worksheets.Add ' add a sheet in first place
    Sheets(1).Name = "Consolidate_sheet1"


    Sheets(2).Activate
    Range("A1").EntireRow.Select
    Selection.Copy Destination:=Sheets(1).Range("A1")


    For J = 2 To Sheets.Count ' from sheet 2 to last sheet
        Sheets(J).Activate ' make the sheet active
        Range("A1").Select
        Selection.CurrentRegion.Select ' select all cells in this sheets

        ' select everything without the title
        Selection.Offset(1, 0).Resize(Selection.Rows.Count - 1).Select

        ' copy cells selectedin the new sheet
        Selection.Copy Destination:=Sheets(1).Range("A65536").End(xlUp)(2)
    Next
End Sub

Open in new window

hi,

I have never used the Data - Consolidate function & I only have Excel 2007 so it may not be the same as in 2010.

However, in case you want a different approach to the ones that Wilder has suggested, do either of the below links help you?
