    Macro to Consolidate workbooks containing empty rows in between and excluding a column

    Hi All,

    I have 150 workbooks (very small in size) in a folder with the same column heading (PFA a sample). Can you help me develop a macro to consolidate all the workbooks. The logical flow should be
    1) Open the folder
    2) Open the first file
    3) Copy from second row till the last filled in row. Excluding Column B (Please note there might be empty rows in between)
    4) Repeat 2 and 3 for the seond file and so on.

    Please note:-
    A) It would be really helpfull if I need to only mention the folder name and not the different Workbook names (150 different workbook names)
    B) I would like to exclude column B from all workbooks while consolidating
    B) For all work sheets the last filled in column is E
    C)The first and last filled row can vary from workbook to workbook

    PFA a sample file

    Re: Macro to Consolidate workbooks containing empty rows in between and excluding a column

    So you are saying the 1st row can vary from report to report. Should i look for text such as "Employee No" to identify the start of the data?

    Do you want the data to be copied along with the blanks to the summary file?

    Do you want the name of the file to be reflected in the summary file?

    Answer 1)No My first row is always 3. So my data starts from A3.

    Answer 2)Without the blanks would be better. Im okay if not possible

    Answer 3) That is not required
