If you want to consolidate data across workbooks, you need to name the data ranges first, then click Browse to select the workbook in the Consolidate dialog, then type the range name into it. See screenshot:

This method is unconvenient, because you need to select ranges one by one, and if you need to consolidate data across workbooks, you need to name data range. Let’s go to next method.
