    Appending Multiple Excel Sheets

    Hi All,

    I working with multiple excel files, each having a 5 spread sheets each. I am trying to append the second sheet onto the first one, and so on down the list of some 400 excel sheets. My problem is that there are multiple columns per sheet, and each sheet contains different data then the last. What I want to do is basically take the first excel file, and append the data from each sheet onto the bottom row of the corresponding row. I hope I am making sense with the explanation, I am trying to write a perl script to do this, but I am having problems, and I am hoping someone else had this situation. And fyi, I didnt organize these files like this, the data came from a outside source who were not thinking propelled.

    Cheers & Thanks,
    Krizbomb

    Sounds like an interesting problem.

    Do I understand you right when I assume that you wish loop through all 400 files in a folder and add all information from the second sheet to the first sheet. Then close this file and repeat the process with the next file in the folder?

    After having copied data from first to second sheet should second sheet be deleted?

    Is the number of columns the same in both sheets?

    What are the names of the first and second sheet?
