    Merging / Consolidating Worksheets

    Hi Everyone,

    I am working on a project for fun but I am struggling to consolidate a few worksheets (not all worksheets) with VBA into a "Master" worksheet.

    The idea is to copy all data over from tabs with "ABC" in the worksheet name, i.e. copy from "ABC - 1", "ABC - 2", "ABC - 3", but not "XYZ - 1" or anything without "ABC".

    All the ABC worksheets have the same header (Name, Price, etc.), so I would like to retain this only once when merging the data.

    If anyone can figure out the VBA code, that would be really helpful! I have tried multiple times and browsed sites, but have not been successful.

    I have attached an example of what the "Master" sheet would look like, and the corresponding tabs.

    Thank you!

    Hey Jos,

    I'm always amazed at how smooth jindon is at VBA. Here is my long winded attempt to do what you wanted. Perhaps it is more readable?

    An alternative solution is to use Power Query. Load all sheets to PQ and append each sheet to the other.

    Re: Merging / Consolidating Worksheets

    Thank you so much Jindon - this worked!

    I have a follow question if you have time to spare.

    I would also like to carry out the following:

    - Rename the values in the name column in the "Master" worksheet based on the "Name Key" tab (i.e. if name is Michael, change to Mike). Some sort of lookup?
    - Rename the name for Juliana to either "Jules (1)" or "Jules (2)", based on the value in the date column. If date is before 10/1/2020, then change to Jules (1). If date is on or after 10/1/2020, then change to Jules (2). Just for this name though, no-one else.

    If you know how to perform this, that would be really helpful! I have attached a second file with this extra info called Example 2.

    The highlighted tab - "Intended Output - Master" is what the "Master" tab should look like, and I've also included a refresh button.

    Thanks again Jindon!

    Re: Merging / Consolidating Worksheets

    Almost! I'd like the (1) or (2) based on the date just for the name Juliana, so Jules (1) or Jules (2) - but the others will just appear as Bob, Mike, etc. (not Bob (1), Mike (1)).

    Thanks again.

    OK,

    I'm out at the moment, so I will fix it later in about 3,4 hours.

    Re: Merging / Consolidating Worksheets

    I can wait, that's fine!

    I've attached another file ("Attempt 3") if you could look at this one instead. I've actually been playing around to see what happens if I switch the column order as well, but for some reason, it keeps changing the column header to "Price", taking it from the first column I believe instead of leaving it at "Name" when I type that in. Maybe you could assist with that after helping with changing just the name Juliana to Jules (1) or (2)?

    The latest code from you with some minor tweaks of mine is the following (you can also find it in Developer in the "Attempt 3" file):

    Re: Merging / Consolidating Worksheets

    I'd say it works 95-99% of the way, but for some reason, it's still changing the column header from "Name" in Column F to "Price" from Column A? So there's 2 price columns.

    Also, noticed that when I replace a name in say "ABC - 1" (i.e. Michael to Wesley, or a name that isn't in Name Key), the code takes values from Column A instead of leaving the name as it is from "ABC - 1"? Is there a way to not edit the name if the name does not exist in the Name Key, rather than replacing it with a price?
