Course Description:

Prepare to be amazed! This is the easiest way to combine multiple Excel files from a folder into one Workbook and create a table or a a pivot table report based on the consolidated data. Many of us send out templates to colleagues and are later faced with the challenge to somehow consolidate multiple Excel files. To append the data into a single Excel workbook can be quite a troublesome and lengthy process. Sure, a solution for this has always been Excel VBA. But learning VBA takes time and it can be too difficult for a lot Excel users. In this tutorial, I’ll show you a much easier approach! We’ll use Excel Get and Transform aka Power Query to combine data from multiple Excel workbooks. We will directly connect to a folder that contains the files and use the feature Combine Files in Power Query. Any time you drop an Excel file in that folder, the data will be appended and consolidated with the rest. You can then create one Excel table for the appended data or create a pivot table from the multiple Excel files. The best part about using Power Query to merge data from Excel files is that you don’t need to write any code! You just need to click a few buttons to append the data from the files.
