Consolidate data in Excel and merge multiple sheets into one worksheet

The tutorial demonstrates different ways to combine sheets in Excel depending on what result you are after - consolidate data from multiple worksheets, combine several sheets by copying their data, or merge two Excel spreadsheets into one by the key column.

Today we will tackle a problem that many Excel users are struggling with daily - how to merge multiple Excel sheets into one without copying and pasting. The tutorial covers two most common scenarios: consolidating numeric data (sum, count, etc.) and merging sheets (i.e. copying data from multiple worksheets into one).

Consolidate data from multiple worksheets in a single worksheet

The quickest way to consolidate data in Excel (located in one workbook or multiple workbooks) is by using the built-in Excel Consolidate feature.

Let's consider the following example. Supposing you have a number of reports from your company regional offices and you want to consolidate those figures into a master worksheet so that you have one summary report with sales totals of all the products.

As you see in the screenshot below, the three worksheets to be consolidated have a similar data structure, but different numbers of rows and columns: The source worksheets to be consolidated into a summary sheet.

To consolidate the data in a single worksheet, perform the following steps:

  1. Arrange the source data properly. For the Excel Consolidate feature to work correctly, make sure that:
    • Each range (data set) you want to consolidate resides on a separate worksheet. Don't put any data on the sheet where you plan to output the consolidated data.
    • Each sheet has the same layout, and each column has a header and contains similar data.
    • There are no blank rows or columns within any list.
  2. Run Excel Consolidate. In the master worksheet, click the upper-left cell where you want the consolidated data to appear, go to the Data tab and click Consolidate.
    Run the Excel Consolidate feature.

    Tip. It's is advisable to consolidate data into an empty sheet. If your master worksheet already has some data, make sure there is enough space (blank rows and columns) to contain the merged data.

  3. Configure the consolidation settings. The Consolidate dialog windows appears and you do the following:
    • In the Function box, select one of the summary functions you want to use to consolidate your data (Count, Average, Max, Min, etc.). In this example, we select Sum.
    • In the Reference box, clicking the Collapse Dialog icon Collapse Dialog icon. and select the range on the first worksheet. Then click the Add button to have that range added to the All references Repeat this step for all the ranges you want to consolidate.

    If one or some of the sheets reside in another workbook, click the Browse bottom to locate the workbook. Click the Browse bottom to locate the workbook.

  4. Configure the update settings. In the same Consolidate dialog window, select any of the following options:
    • Check the Top row and/or Left column boxes under Use labels if you want the row and/or column labels of the source ranges to be copied to the consolidation.
    • Select the Create links to source data box if you want the consolidated data to update automatically whenever the source data changes. In this case, Excel will create links to your source worksheets as well as an outline like in the following screenshot.
    Selecting the 'Create links to source data check box' will force the consolidated data to update automatically and create outline.

    If you expand some group (by clicking the plus outline symbol), and then click on the cell with a certain value, a link to the source data will display in the formula bar. A link to the source data displays in the formula bar.

As you see, the Excel Consolidate feature is very helpful to pull together data from several worksheets. However, it does have a few limitations. In particular, it works for numeric values only and it always summarizes those numbers in one way or another (sum, count, average, etc.)

If you want to merge sheets in Excel by copying their data, the consolidation option is not the way to go. To combine just a couple of sheets, you may not need anything else but the good old copy/paste. But if you are to merge tens of sheets, errors with manual copying/pasting are inevitable. In this case, you may want to employ one of the following techniques to automate the merge.

How to merge Excel sheets into one

Overall, there are four ways to merge Excel worksheets into one without copying and pasting:

How to combine Excel spreadsheets with Ultimate Suite

The built-in Excel Consolidate feature can summarize data from different sheets, but it cannot combine sheets by copying their data. For this, you can use one of the merge & combine tools included with our Ultimate Suite for Excel.

Combine multiple worksheets into one with Copy Sheets

Supposing you have a few spreadsheets that contain information about different products, and now you need to merge these sheets into one summary worksheet, like this: Combine multiple Excel spreadsheets into one.

With the Copy Sheets added to your ribbon, the 3 simple steps is all it takes to merge the selected sheets into one.

  1. Start the Copy Sheets Wizard.

    On the Excel ribbon, go to the Ablebits tab, Merge group, click Copy Sheets, and choose one of the following options:

    • Copy sheets in each workbook to one sheet and put the resulting sheets to one workbook.
    • Merge the identically named sheets to one.
    • Copy the selected sheets to one workbook.
    • Combine data from the selected sheets to one sheet.

    Since we are looking to combine several sheets by copying their data, we pick the last option:
    Combining the selected sheets into one.

  2. Select worksheets and, optionally, ranges to merge.

    The Copy Sheets wizard displays a list of all the sheets in all open workbooks. Select the worksheets you want to combine and click Next.

    If you don't want to copy the entire content of a certain worksheet, make use of the Collapse Dialog icon to select the desired range as shown in the screenshot below.

    In this example, we are merging the first three sheets:
    Select the worksheets to merge.

    Tip. If the worksheets you want to merge reside in another workbook that is currently closed, click the Add files... button to browse for that workbook.

  3. Choose how to merge sheets.

    In this step, you are to configure additional settings so that your worksheets will be combined exactly the way you want.

    How to paste the data:

    • Paste all - copy all the data (values and formulas). In most cases, it is the option to choose.
    • Paste values only - if you don't want formulas from the original sheets to be pasted into the summary worksheet, select this option.
    • Create links to source data - this will inset formulas linking the merged data to the source data. Select this option if you want the merged data to update automatically whenever any of the source data changes. It works similarly to the Create links to source data option of Excel Consolidate.

    How to arrange the data:

    • Place copied ranges one under another - arrange the copied ranges vertically.
    • Place copied ranges side by side - arrange the copied ranges horizontally.

    How to copy the data:

    • Preserve formatting - self-explanatory and very convenient.
    • Separate the copied ranges by a blank row - select this option if you want to add an empty row between data copied from different worksheets.
    • Copy tables with their headers. Check this option if you want the table headers to be included in the resulting sheet.

    The screenshot below shows the default settings that work just fine for us:
    Select additional options to merge worksheets.

    Click the Copy button, and you will have the information from three different sheets merged into one summary worksheet like shown in the beginning of this example.

Other ways to combine sheets in Excel

Apart from the Copy Sheets wizard, the Ultimate Suite for Excel provides a few more merging tools to handle more specific scenarios.

Example 1. Merge Excel sheets with a different order of columns

When you are dealing with the sheets created by different users, the order of columns is often different. How do you handle this? Will you be copying the sheets manually or moving columns in each sheet? Neither! Commit the job to our Combine Sheets wizard: Combine Sheets for Excel.

And the data will be combined perfectly by column headers: The data from different sheets are combined by column headers.

Example 2. Merge specific columns from multiple sheets

If you have really large sheets with tons of different columns, you may want to merge only the most important ones to a summary table. Run the Combine Worksheets wizard and select the relevant columns. Yep, it's that easy! Merge specific columns from multiple sheets.

As the result, only the data from the columns that you selected get into the summary sheet: Only selected columns from multiple sheets are merged.

These examples have demonstrated only a couple of our merge tools, but there is much more to it! After experimenting a bit, you will see how useful all the features are. The fully functional evaluation version of the Ultimate Suite is available for download at the end of this post.

Merge sheets in Excel using VBA code

If you are a power Excel user and feel comfortable with macros and VBA, you can combine multiple Excel sheets into one by using some VBA script, for example this one.

Please keep in mind that for the VBA code to work correctly, all of the source worksheets must have the same structure, the same column headings and same column order.

Combine data from multiple worksheets with Power Query

Power Query is a very powerful technology to combine and refine data in Excel. At that, it's rather complex and requires a long learning curve. The following tutorial explains the common uses in detail: Combine data from multiple data sources (Power Query).

How to merge two Excel sheets into one by the key column(s)

If you are looking for a quick way to match and merge data from two worksheets, then you can either employ the Excel VLOOKUP function or embrace the Merge Tables Wizard. The latter is a visual user-friendly tool that lets you compare two Excel spreadsheets by a common column(s) and pull matching data from the lookup table. The following screenshot demonstrates one of possible results. Merging two Excel sheets into one by the key column.

The Merge Tables wizard is also included with the Ultimate Suite for Excel.

This is how you consolidate data and merge sheets in Excel. I hope you will find the information in this short tutorial helpful. Anyway, I thank you for reading and look forward to seeing you on this blog next week!

  1. i have sales summary of january to december on different sheets how can i put them on a sheet

      • I have tried this method but only the numbers are consolidating. But the alphabets are not getting consolidate.

        • Hi!
          Consolidation is the sum of numbers from multiple sheets to get a total result. You cannot summarize text. What exactly did you want to do?

  2. Hi Svetlana Cheusheva ,

    Your article helped me save many time-consuming processes of consolidating the multiple sheets into a single sheet in the same workbook using the VBA Method.

    I am a finance graduate and I sometimes have difficulty with excel formulae whenever I face something difficult in excel I Check your article if there any post you have made relevant to that and that's it my issue will be fixed if I have any post about it and I also study excel formulae using your articles which makes me a better understanding of everything just like index and match, Randomfunction which I used to prepare my schedule to study randomly list goes on.

    Thank you so much for your work and passion and have a nice day.

  3. When combining Excel spreadsheets, you want the source of the worksheet displayed in a column (e.g. Products1, Products2, Products3) so that you know where each line of the data in the combined worksheet is originated from. I couldn't figure out how to do it. Can the tool handle this basic need?

    • You could do this with PowerQuery.

      As a general approach you would start by importing your tab "Products1" into the PowerQuery Editor. Then you'd create a new "Customised column" with e.g. the column title "Origin" and a fix value of "Prod_1".

      You repeat the same steps with Products2, Products3 etc. When you then merge your separate tables in PowerQuery, you'll end up with a merged column "Origin" which contains the information of where a given lines originates from.

  11. My husband is trying to merge two work sheets. However when he uses consolidate so information goes missing. How is this resolved?

  12. Good Morning,

    I have two excel workbooks that I am trying to merge together. One is an old one, one is a new one. Both have multiple tabs. Is it possible to merge the data so that it goes into each tab? For instance:
    Tab1 (Old) is named: Bay Valley Foods
    Tab1 (new) is named: Bay Valley Foods
    Tab2 (Old) is named: Ralcorp
    Tab2 (New) is named: Ralcorp

    I am trying to combine Tab1 (new) into Tab1(old) and Tab2 (new) into Tab2 (Old).

    As this is a work computer, I am also not allowed to download anything including the merge table wizard. So I would need to know if this is possible without that.

  13. Hi,
    I'd like to automate the process of merging data from two separate sheets. Is there a macro or a VBA script that will allow me to use the Merge Two Tables option to quickly merge data? When I try to record a macro for the Merge Two Tables feature it just shows up blank. Thank you!

  18. Hi, is it possible to add each sheet name into the consolidated Sheet?

  19. I have a requirement. I have data in sheet 1, Sheet 2 and sheet 3 in a excel. I have around 100 records in each sheets. I want to combine all this data in another sheet, say sheet 4. The order of the record in sheet 4 should be like 1 record from sheet 1, next record should be from sheet 2 and next should be fro sheet 3 and again go to sheet 1 and so on... Note all the column names are the same in all the sheet. Any short cut techniques other than copy paste

    • Once you install the plugin, then under the plugin/addon use "copy sheets --> Data from the selected sheets --> select row you want to copy from multiple sheets" then set your preferences to create the new sheet(in your case sheet4). It should work, but you have to give the row range for all the sheets not sure if there any program to run this method. Let me know how it goes, even I'm working to get the data in similar way, will share you if I have anything

  20. Hi,
    I'm using your add-in for the first time. Thanks for it, save lot of time.
    But I have an issue when using it, for the first time when I try to consolidate the data(specific row range) from multiple sheets(6 sheets) into one master sheet it worked.

  22. Say you have an employee name list with salaries as well. Some employees have now received a raise and their updated salaries are in a new table along with their names. How would I merge the new salaries to replace the old ones?

    • Hello, Dean,
      Thank you for your question.

      If we understand your task correctly, please have a look at our Merge Tables Wizard. It allows you to update the data in the main table with the data from the lookup table based on the key column(s).

  23. Hi,

    I need to creates a macro that would merge data in two sheets to one. The number of columns and the column headers are the same.

    The only catch here is every time we run the macro we will have different number of rows in each of these sheets so we cannot hard code the row numbers in to the VBA code as it will keep changing. I want a general Macro which would paste the data of one sheet after the other sheet into a new sheet.

  24. I have 7 worksheets.
    Each worksheet has several matching fields but they also have several different fields.
    IS there a way to merge them so the similar fields are in the correct column and the different fields are in their own column?
    The different fields will have blank cells were the data doesn't pertain. Also the number of rows increases each day in all worksheets.

  25. I have 14 different spreadsheets and each spreadsheet has some of the same data but they also have different data for some of the columns and rows. For instance one sheet will go to column N while another one will go to column AB. I want to create a master spreadsheet that combines the data of all 14 spreadsheets into one. We support different groups and the main objective is to try and see what groups have what. It will be a very big workbook. Does the consolidate data tool work for this type of functionality?

  33. Hi everyone,

    First of all I have to tell that I have no experience with Macro (VBA Codes). However what I need is related to this. Maybe you guys could help me with it.

    I have a workbook and in this workbook there are 10 worksheets. The first 9 Sheets have the same order of the coloumns of titles and in these columns there are names, dates, percentages of Project Status, comments to Projects etc.. As I said the columns have the same order just the name of the worksheets (for different Teams in the Organisation) are different.

    In Addition to this I have to merge all the worksheets and have them in another sheet which is called "Übersicht" (Overview). However there is a different column in the sheet and it's between "Nr." and "Thema" columns (which are in A1 and B1 in all the 9 Sheets) and this different column called "Kategorie" (in A2 in Übersicht-Overwiev sheet). As this column is between These the order is like this "Nr. (A1), Kategorie (B1) and Thema (C1).....".So this category column (Kategorie) should be empty except this all the Information should be merged into this sheet. And also when there is a Change or update in any worksheet, the Information in "Übersicht" (Overview) sheet needs to update by itself. How can I do this?

    P.S.: Every sheet has different filled rows, some 30, some 13, some 5 etc. And the Teams which are responsible for the Sheets can add or delete some rows (in each row there is different Information for different Projects). This also means the number of rows can increase or decrease.

    I hope I explained it well. Thanks a lot in advance!

    I wish you merry Christmas and a happy new year!
