    Question Setting Up A Large Spreadsheet

    I'm have Excel 2010 and Windows XP. Each week I get 3 spreadsheets and each has data unique to it. Each spreadsheet has a week number column which is common to all three. I want to combine the three worksheets into one and make create several dynamic charts for management. How should I organize a large spreadsheet? In addition to my week number I have a host of other date fields. Some of the data I get is (1) vehicle VIN numbers (2) City/State/Country (3a) I break up the VIN to give me vehicle type (3b) year of assembly (3c) car type (3d) number of doors (4) mileage (5) complaint (7) defect code etc. etc. What are the do's and don't when setting up a large spreadsheet? I have data by week which goes back to 2006 and so my date fields go top-down. I inherited the three spreadsheets and would like everything under one roof, so to speak. One spreadsheet which I can make my charts.

    I Tony,

    I would suggest you to append all the data into a common sheet, if all the 3 sheets have common fields plus include a week column as well along with year. So these 3 sheets would be appended every week . After this, you can use pivot charts and pivot tables etc for further reporting.
