Columns in my tables change places from file to file, how will your add-in manage them?

Combine Sheets recognizes the identically named columns and merges their values into one column, regardless of the position of the columns in the source tables.

My data includes many formulas, will your add-in transfer them as well?

Yes. You can choose to copy the formulas or their calculated values, or even create links to the source data, so the combined table will update automatically with every change you make to the original sheets.

My tables are formatted differently, can the add-in keep my formatting?

Yes. If you choose the Preserve formatting option, each table will be copied with its own formatting.
