Hello Ablebits Team,
When using "Copy Sheets" and selecting the option "Data from the selected sheets to one sheet" and then selecting the option "Use the same sheet names in other workbooks"...
What is the maximum # of workbooks supported by the add-in?
Thank you for contacting us and for your question. Our add-in does not have clearly defined limitations on the number of workbooks to process. However, your resulting worksheet shouldn't exceed Excel limits on the total number of rows and columns on a worksheet.
If you've encountered any difficulties in using our add-in, please let us know how many workbooks you are trying to copy at the same time and how many rows and columns your tables contain. Thank you.
I have several files in a folder. All files have same format. How can combine all the files so that a single file is created but the files are not added below each other but next to each other on the final sheet.
I am typing a case below where Col is Column.
File#1: Col A, Col B, Col C, File#2: Col A, Col B, Col C, File#N: Col A, Col B, Col C
Col A( from Col A, File #1), Col B(From Col B, File #1), Col C(From Col C, File #1) Col D (From Col A, File #2) Col E(from Col B, File#2) Col F(From Col C, File #2) ..... Col N(Col A, From File#N) Col N+1(Col B, From File#N) Col N+2 (Col C, From File#N)
Thanks for all your help.

I am trying to copy the same data range from 200 different sheets into one single sheet. Instead of manually selecting the desired range for each sheet, is there a way of standardizing the desired range for all sheets?
Thank you for contacting us. I'm really sorry, the add-in doesn't have such an option at the moment. I will forward your request to our development team, hope they would add this functionality in future. Thank you for sharing this suggestion with us.
In copy sheets I want to choose the same range for all sheets, How?
Thank you for your question, Ahmed.
Our Copy Sheets selects the entire table automatically. If you want to change its range, you can do it in the Ranges section on the 2nd step of the add-in, but you'll have to do it manually for each sheet.

Thank you for contacting us, Saikumar.
For us to be able to understand your task better, please send us a small sample workbook with your source data and the result you expect to get to firstname.lastname@example.org. I kindly ask you to shorten the table to 10-20 rows.
If you have confidential information there, you can replace it with some irrelevant data, just keep the format.
We'll look into your task and see if our software can help.
I have used your software . could you explain how I can do this task
- While inserting each row with title, add file name in the first column. (similar to Microsoft Power Query).
Thank you for contacting us.
Unfortunately, our software doesn't support such functionality. Sorry for not being able to help you more.
Hi Im trying to copy sheets from the one workbook to a new sheet on the same workbook. The Copy sheet feature doesn't have this option. Will you be able to add this feature? I don't want to create a new workbook. I'm still using a trial version. And I would like this feature before I decide to purchase.
Thank you in advance.
Thank you for contacting us and for your question.
You are correct, the current version of the add-on doesn't have this feature.
I have forwarded your request to our developers and they will look if it is technically possible to implement it. I can't guarantee it will be added, but we can contact you back if/when the functionality is supported.
Thank you for your time and understanding.
