Combining Excel Files

Copper Contributor

I have 5 separate spreadsheet files (example below) laid out like this that all need combining.

Each file contains different data but the headers in bold are the same.

I tried to combine these using power query but came across 2 main issues and didnt get very far:

1. I have no option to select 'folder' as a data source (all the 5 spreadsheets are kept in 1 folder)

2. All the examples I could find are using data spread across columns, not in rows like mine. I have tried transposing my data but it needs to be kept in these rows.


Can anybody please advise me the best solution here?

Have you tried the VSTACK function? There are several tutorials online to show you. That might help. Good luck!

I tried this but couldn't work out how this works as my data is displayed vertically across multiple tabs and I will have fresh data every month. Any ideas?
