Combining worksheets

Posted on 2016-10-08

Last Modified: 2016-10-28
I have an excel workbook with 3 worksheets, all with the same table consisting of the same columns. Each workbook has the capacity to have 20 rows of information filled in.

 I need to be able to copy all the information from each three sheets onto the forth sheet after the corresponding heading.

 However, is there a way to only copy the filled in rows to save large gaps on the forth page?

 Thanks in advance

What version of Excel you are using?
If you are using 2010 or later, I would suggest for Power Query to get the desired output.
Please upload a sample workbook with desired output on fourth sheet mocked up manually to visualise the end result.

Please watch this short video showing all the steps to get it done.
Though I am using Excel-2013, the steps would be same for Power Query Editing Window except in 2016 the power query is built in under Data Tab. You will be required to find it yourself.
