Combine multiple workbooks Into one workbook with Move or Copy function

If there are just a couple of workbooks need to be combined, you can use the Move or Copy command to manually move or copy worksheets from the original workbook to the master workbook.

1. Open the workbooks which you will merge into a master workbook.

2. Select the worksheets in the original workbook that you will move or copy to the master workbook.

Notes:

1). You can select multiple non-adjacent worksheets with holding the Ctrl key and clicking the sheet tabs one by one.

2). For selecting multiple adjacent worksheets, please click on the first sheet tab, hold the Shift key, and then click the last sheet tab to select them all.

3). You can right click on any sheet tab, click on Select All Sheets from the context menu to select all worksheets in the workbook at the same time.

3. After selecting the needed worksheets, right click the sheet tab, and then click Move or Copy from the context menu. See screenshot:

4. Then the Move or Copy dialog pops up, in the To book drop-down, select the master workbook you will move or copy worksheets into. Select move to end in the Before sheet box, check the Create a copy box, and finally click the OK button.

Combine multiple workbooks or specified sheets of workbooks to a master workbook with VBA

If there are multiple workbooks need to be merged into one, you can apply the following VBA codes to quickly achieve it. Please do as follows.

1. Put all workbooks that you want to combine into one under the same directory.

2. Launch an Excel file (this workbook will be the master workbook).

3. Press the Alt + F11 keys to open the Microsoft Visual Basic for applications window. In the Microsoft Visual Basic for applications window, click Insert > Module, then copy below VBA code into the Module window.

VBA code 1: Merge multiple Excel workbooks into one

Sub GetSheets()
'Updated by Extendoffice 2019/2/20
Path = "C:\Users\dt\Desktop\dt kte\"
Filename = Dir(Path & "*.xls")
  Do While Filename <> ""
  Workbooks.Open Filename:=Path & Filename, ReadOnly:=True
     For Each Sheet In ActiveWorkbook.Sheets
     Sheet.Copy After:=ThisWorkbook.Sheets(1)
  Next Sheet
     Workbooks(Filename).Close
     Filename = Dir()
  Loop
End Sub
	

Notes:

1. The above VBA code will keep the sheet names of the original workbooks after merging.

2. If you want to distinguish which worksheets in the master workbook came from where after merging, please apply the below VBA code 2.

3. If you just want to combine specified worksheets of the workbooks into a master workbook, the below VBA code 3 can help.

In VBA codes, “C:\Users\DT168\Desktop\KTE\” is the folder path. In the VBA code 3, "Sheet1,Sheet3" is the specified worksheets of the workbooks you will combine to a master workbook. You can change them based on your needs.

VBA code 2: Merge Workbooks into one (each worksheet will be named with prefix of its original file name):

Sub MergeWorkbooks()
'Updated by Extendoffice 2019/2/20
Dim xStrPath As String
Dim xStrFName As String
Dim xWS As Worksheet
Dim xMWS As Worksheet
Dim xTWB As Workbook
Dim xStrAWBName As String
On Error Resume Next
xStrPath = "C:\Users\DT168\Desktop\KTE\"
xStrFName = Dir(xStrPath & "*.xlsx")
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Set xTWB = ThisWorkbook
Do While Len(xStrFName) > 0
    Workbooks.Open Filename:=xStrPath & xStrFName, ReadOnly:=True
    xStrAWBName = ActiveWorkbook.Name
    For Each xWS In ActiveWorkbook.Sheets
    xWS.Copy After:=xTWB.Sheets(xTWB.Sheets.Count)
    Set xMWS = xTWB.Sheets(xTWB.Sheets.Count)
    xMWS.Name = xStrAWBName & "(" & xMWS.Name & ")"
    Next xWS
    Workbooks(xStrAWBName).Close
    xStrFName = Dir()
Loop
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
Application.DisplayAlerts = True
End Sub

VBA code 3: Merge specified worksheets of workbooks into a master workbook:

Sub MergeSheets2()
'Updated by Extendoffice 2019/2/20
Dim xStrPath As String
Dim xStrFName As String
Dim xWS As Worksheet
Dim xMWS As Worksheet
Dim xTWB As Workbook
Dim xStrAWBName As String
Dim xI As Integer
On Error Resume Next

xStrPath = " C:\Users\DT168\Desktop\KTE\"
xStrName = "Sheet1,Sheet3"

xArr = Split(xStrName, ",")

Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Set xTWB = ThisWorkbook
xStrFName = Dir(xStrPath & "*.xlsx")
Do While Len(xStrFName) > 0
Workbooks.Open Filename:=xStrPath & xStrFName, ReadOnly:=True
xStrAWBName = ActiveWorkbook.Name
For Each xWS In ActiveWorkbook.Sheets
For xI = 0 To UBound(xArr)
If xWS.Name = xArr(xI) Then
xWS.Copy After:=xTWB.Sheets(xTWB.Sheets.count)
Set xMWS = xTWB.Sheets(xTWB.Sheets.count)
xMWS.Name = xStrAWBName & "(" & xArr(xI) & ")"
Exit For
End If
Next xI
Next xWS
Workbooks(xStrAWBName).Close
xStrFName = Dir()
Loop
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
Application.DisplayAlerts = True

End Sub

4. Press the F5 key to run the code. Then all worksheets or specified worksheets of the workbooks in the certain folder are combined to a master workbook at once.

 

Easily combine multiple workbooks or specified sheets of workbooks to one workbook

Fortunately, the Combine workbook utility of Kutools for Excel makes it much easier to merge multiple workbooks into one. Let's see how to get this function work in combining multiple workbooks.

1. Create a new workbook and click Kutools Plus > Combine. Then a dialog pops to remind you that all combined workbooks should be saved and the feature can't be applied to protected workbooks, please click the OK button.

2. In the Combine Worksheets wizard, select Combine multiple worksheets from workbooks into one workbook option, and then click the Next button. See screenshot:

3. In the Combine Worksheets - Step 2 of 3 dialog box, click the Add > File or Folder to add the Excel files you will merge into one. After adding the Excel files, click the Finish button and choose a folder to save the master workbook. See screenshot:

    Hello, can anyone advise me please if it is possible to combine workbooks NOT into the one where I have(run) the button with VBA macro BUT to a completely different new workbook? So basically I would like to know if it is possible to create a macro in VBA that would create new workbook(file) with combined data from other workbooks? Would greatly appreciate your help! Thank you!

    Say you want to combine workbooks by fives or twos or tens. So basically, if you have 50 workbooks and you want to combine them by fives, you'll have 10 workbooks, each having 5 workbooks worth of data by the end of it. How do you tweak this data?

      Hi Jonel,
      The following code can help you solve the problem. You need to replace folder path and "Sheet1, Sheet3" with the specified folder path and worksheets as you need.

      Sub MergeSheets2()
      Dim xStrPath As String
      Dim xStrFName As String
      Dim xWS As Worksheet
      Dim xMWS As Worksheet

      Dim xI As Integer
      On Error Resume Next

      xStrPath = " C:\Users\DT168\Desktop\KTE\"
      xStrName = "Sheet1,Sheet3"

      xArr = Split(xStrName, ",")

      Application.ScreenUpdating = False
      Application.DisplayAlerts = False
      Set xTWB = ThisWorkbook
      xStrFName = Dir(xStrPath & "*.xlsx")
      Do While Len(xStrFName) > 0
      Workbooks.Open Filename:=xStrPath & xStrFName, ReadOnly:=True
      xStrAWBName = ActiveWorkbook.Name
      For Each xWS In ActiveWorkbook.Sheets
      For xI = 0 To UBound(xArr)
      If xWS.Name = xArr(xI) Then
      xWS.Copy After:=xTWB.Sheets(xTWB.Sheets.count)
      Set xMWS = xTWB.Sheets(xTWB.Sheets.count)
      xMWS.Name = xStrAWBName & "(" & xArr(xI) & ")"
      Exit For
      End If
      Next xI
      Next xWS
      Workbooks(xStrAWBName).Close

    When I run this, each sheet in the new workbook is being named based off of the sheet names of the original document rather than the filenames. Any idea what I might be doing wrong?

    Hi everyone,

    First of all I have to tell that I have no experience with Macro (VBA Codes). However what I need is related to this. Maybe you guys could help me with it.

    I have a workbook and in this workbook there are 10 worksheets. The first 9 Sheets have the same order of the coloumns of titles and in these columns there are names, dates, percentages of Project Status, comments to Projects etc.. As I said the columns have the same order just the name of the worksheets (for different Teams in the Organisation) are different.

    In Addition to this I have to merge all the worksheets and have them in another sheet which is called "Übersicht" (Overview). However there is a different column in the sheet and it's between "Nr." and "Thema" columns (which are in A1 and A2 in all the 9 Sheets) and this different column called "Kategorie" (in A2 in Übersicht-Overwiev sheet). As this column is between These the order is like this "Nr. (A1), Kategorie (A2) and Thema (A3).....".So this category column (Kategorie) should be empty except this all the Information should be merged into this sheet. And also when there is a Change or update in any worksheet, the Information in "Übersicht" (Overview) sheet needs to update by itself. How can I do this?

    I hope I explained it well. Thanks a lot in advance!

    I wish you merry Christmas and a happy new year!

    When merging multiple Excel files, how can I get the merge routine to skip the first row on all but the first worksheet (so that only data are in the merged file, not variable names with each new Excel worksheet that gets added to the merged data set)?

    By the way, I'm using Excel 2016 and here's the code I have, which seems to work correctly:

    Sub mergeFiles()
    Dim numberOfFilesChosen, i As Integer
    Dim tempFileDialog As FileDialog
    Dim mainWorkbook, sourceWorkbook As Workbook
    Dim tempWorkSheet As Worksheet

    Set mainWorkbook = Application.ActiveWorkbook
    Set tempFileDialog = Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogFilePicker)

    tempFileDialog.AllowMultiSelect = True

    numberOfFilesChosen = tempFileDialog.Show

    For i = 1 To tempFileDialog.SelectedItems.Count

    Workbooks.Open tempFileDialog.SelectedItems(i)

    Set sourceWorkbook = ActiveWorkbook

    For Each tempWorkSheet In sourceWorkbook.Worksheets
    tempWorkSheet.Copy after:=mainWorkbook.Sheets(mainWorkbook.Worksheets.Count)
    Next tempWorkSheet

    sourceWorkbook.Close
    Next i

    End Sub

    This code is great. One question.

    The team I'm building a workbook for gets data from several external sources, and many of the sheets appear similar and have the same name. This makes it hard to identify the sources of data just by looking at the sheets. However, each workbook will have a different file name.

    For example, if I pull in three files: Book1, Book2, Book3, and each of them has two sheets: SheetA, SheetB... After all is said and done, there isn't a clear way to distinguish which sheets came from where, since the sheet names will just be: SheetA, SheetB, SheetA (2), SheetB (2), SheetA (3), SheetB (3).

    Instead if they could be renamed to SheetABook1, SheetBBook1, SheetABook2, SheetBBook2, etc. they'd be more identifiable. Is there a way to have the VBA tack on the file name to the existing sheet names?
    • To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.
      Adam Grise · 2 years ago
      Update: I have discovered that there is *just* enough variance in column headers such that I can identify which is which, and from there I can rename the sheets based on those properties. It appears that will work for now, but I'd be curious if it's still possible to do what I'd originally thought.

      Hi, I run into an syntaxis error while I execute this code (I also need just to combine sheet 1 from around 250 seperate .xls files into one file). I am not a VBA specialist.


      This below pops up in yellow.
      Sub MergeFilesWithoutSpaces()

      Another question: do I need to replace the "c:\test\"path by my path where these 250 .xls are stored?
      Any other modifications to this code?


      Much appreciated!

    Hi All
    I have successfully imported couple of excel spread sheets in one sheet by using below mentioned vb script:

    Sub GetSheets()
    Path = "Z:\.....\reports\"
    Filename = Dir(Path & "*.xls")
    Do While Filename ""
    Workbooks.Open Filename:=Path & Filename, ReadOnly:=True
    For Each Sheet In ActiveWorkbook.Sheets
    Sheet.Copy After:=ThisWorkbook.Sheets(1)
    Next Sheet
    Workbooks(Filename).Close
    Filename = Dir()
    Loop

    However can anyone help me refining above script on how to import both the formats i.e. ".xls" and ".xlsx" of excel spread sheet by using single vb script.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Workbooks.Open Filename:=Path & Filename, ReadOnly:=True
    temp = ActiveWorkbook.Name
    ActiveSheet.Name = temp
    ActiveWorkbook.Sheets(temp).Copy After:=ThisWorkbook.Sheets(1)
    Workbooks(Filename).Close
    Filename = Dir()
    Loop
    End Sub

    However facing issue with two different format of excel spread sheets i.e. [b]"xls"[/b] and [b]"xlsx"[/b] which i would like to import. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    When I click Finish for Combine Worksheets step 3 of 3,
    it asks me to save a file name,
    and then it just sits there.

    THE FOLLOWING CODE WORKED FOR ME IN EXCEL 2016. YOU NEED TO SPECIFY YOUR OWN DIRECTORY IN PLACE OF THE ONE I USED. IN MY CASE THE WERE REQUIRED IN THIS LINE (CONTRARY TO WHAT SOME OTHERS USED ABOVE): Do While Filename "".

    THE CODE THAT WORKED FOR ME FOLLOWS (I EMPLOYED THE STEPS OUTLINED IN THE ORIGINAL POST TO CREATE THIS CODE):


    Sub GetSheets()
    Path = "C:\Users\Kevin\Documents\Combine Excel Workbooks\Workbooks to Combine\"
    Filename = Dir(Path & "*.xlsx")
    Do While Filename ""
    Workbooks.Open Filename:=Path & Filename, ReadOnly:=False
    For Each Sheet In ActiveWorkbook.Sheets
    Sheet.Copy After:=ThisWorkbook.Sheets(1)
    Next Sheet
    Workbooks(Filename).Close
    Filename = Dir()
    Loop
    End Sub

    Recently we we're solving this task for customer with more than 2000 different information types, hundreds of source excel files. They wanted to merge them into one big sheet to wok with.

    As a part of this work, we've developer Excel Stats Merger app: https://www.jandrozd.eu/products/excel-stats-merger/ - it does not require MS Office to do the job. You simply define merging rules and then process your files.

    Sub GetSheets()
    Path = "G:\COM\Diabetes Center\Pat\Time Sheets\My time Sheet 2013"
    Filename = Dir(Path & "*.xlsx")
    Do While Filename ""
    Workbooks.Open Filename:=Path & Filename, ReadOnly:=True

    Thanks. With some changes, the following works for me:

    Sub GetSheets() 'make sure the module is created in the current Excel spreadsheet "Weather data 201611.xlsx", not the "Personal.xlsb"
    Path = "C:\Weather Data\201611\" 'remember to change the file location here
    Filename = Dir(Path & "*.csv") ' .csv is the type of file while we wanted to open, change to xls or xlsx if required
    Do While Filename ""
    Workbooks.Open Filename:=Path & Filename, ReadOnly:=False 'Depending on the files which we want to open, if it is a read only file then change to ReadOnly:=True
    For Each Sheet In ActiveWorkbook.Sheets
    Sheet.Copy After:=Workbooks("Weather data 201611.xlsx").Sheets(1) 'Remember to change the file name to the file name while is new open for this module. Make sure the type match as well
    Next Sheet
    Workbooks(Filename).Close
    Filename = Dir()
    Loop
    End Sub

    2.) copy specific worksheet in selected workbooks and paste to current workbook, and if the worksheets have same sheetname, it will add a number e.g (1) on the side of the sheetname.

    Hello, I tried this code for combining the files and it worked well. However I have a situation where in I have to combine the data from different sheets of multiple files in to one master file with multiple sheets.

    For ex: I have 10 different file and each file has data in Sheet 1 and Sheet 2. I want to create a consolidate data in to one master and all data from sheet 1 of multiple files should be consolidated in one sheet 1 of master and sheet 2 in sheet of master. Can this be done?

    thanks for the macro guided for 'Combine multiple workbooks to one workbook with VBA'.

    However, i do have an additional cirtumtances.
    Let's take your example.
    In the folder 'dt kte', there are 4 workbook (book1, book2, book3 & book4)
    The macro will merge all worksheet in every single workbook into my excel file.
    However, the circumtances i need is:-
    in every workbook, there is mutual sheet named "HIJ".

    what would be the macro if i only want to merge the HIJ worksheet in book1 to book4, into one workbook i want?

    The above code works well, but it seems that it doesn't follow any certain order, in my folder, each excel file ( before merging ) has 1 sheet with same name,for exp: book1 contains sheet named A, book2 also contains sheet named A ,....then after merging by VBA, the combined workbook contains sheets named A, A(1), A(2), A(3),...in random order, A(1) actually doesn't belongs to initial book1. So it's hard for me to identify, I can't know each sheet originally belongs to which file. The result I expect is that all sheets will be combine in name order of original separated file

    Perhaps i can't explain my point well, if someone has same situation or can understand me, then pls kindly upgrade vba code that can combine sheets in order of alphabet name or ascending number ?

    I'm new to Excel and am struggling to identify what I need to personalise in this code to make it work. Obviously "path" but is that it? as I'm getting errors on the two "set copyrng" and "set dest" row.

    None of these worked for me

    I finally got this one to work. FYI I am using 2010

    'Description: Combines all files in a folder to a master file.
    Sub MergeFiles()
    Dim path As String, ThisWB As String, lngFilecounter As Long
    Dim wbDest As Workbook, shtDest As Worksheet, ws As Worksheet
    Dim Filename As String, Wkb As Workbook
    Dim CopyRng As Range, Dest As Range
    Dim RowofCopySheet As Integer

    RowofCopySheet = 2 ' Row to start on in the sheets you are copying from

    ThisWB = ActiveWorkbook. Name

    path = "mypath....." ' Dont't forget to change this

    Application.Ena bleEvents = False
    Application.Scr eenUpdating = False

    Set shtDest = ActiveWorkbook. Sheets(1)
    Filename = Dir(path & "\*.xls", vbNormal)
    If Len(Filename) = 0 Then Exit Sub
    Do Until Filename = vbNullString
    If Not Filename = ThisWB Then
    Set Wkb = Workbooks.Open( Filename:=path & "\" & Filename)
    Set CopyRng = Wkb.Sheets(1).R ange(Cells(Rowo fCopySheet, 1), Cells(ActiveShe et.UsedRange.Ro ws.Count, ActiveSheet.Use dRange.Columns. Count))
    Set Dest = shtDest.Range(" A" & shtDest.UsedRan ge.SpecialCells (xlCellTypeLast Cell).Row + 1)
    CopyRng.Copy Dest
    Wkb.Close False
    End If

    Filename = Dir()
    Loop

    Range("A1").Sel ect

    Application.Ena bleEvents = True
    Application.Scr eenUpdating = True

    MsgBox "Done!"
    End Sub

    Make sure you add a \ at the end of your path.

    Example:

    Bad: Path = "C:\Users\dt\Desktop\dt kte"

    Good: Path = "C:\Users\dt\Desktop\dt kte\"

    I am having data for all the 365 days for 14 year in one excel sheet.

    Now we want to separate the data year wise (Ex. one excel file for year 2002 in that 12 Sheet ie for 12 month and another excel file for year 2003 in that 12 Sheet ie for 12 month).

    We are able to separate month wise data (by using Excel Kutools - Split Data) and it will create excel sheet for each month (ie it will create totally 24 sheets) and then we should Split to Workbook and it will be 24 excel file and again we should combine 12 file for each year. This is taking lot of time.

    Now our problem is while splitting the date we want Excel to create Year wise Excel files and in each excel file 12 sheets for 12 months. Can we do this in same time.

    Please tell us because we are having lots of data and it is taking lot of time.
