Excel: how to merge multiple sheets into one worksheet

By IsraeliPanda

you have a few Excel exercise manuals and you need to blend them into one record? This could be an inconvenient and long cycle. In any case, there are 6 distinct strategies for how to combine existing exercise manuals and worksheets into one document. Contingent upon the size and number of exercise manuals, something like one of these techniques ought to be useful for you. We should investigate them.


To consolidate only a limited quantity of records, go with strategy 1 or strategy 2 beneath. For whatever else, if it’s not too much trouble, investigate the techniques 4 to 6: Either utilize a VBA large scale, helpfully utilize an Excel-add-in or use PowerQuery (PowerQuery just conceivable if the sheets to combine have the very same design).

Strategy 1: Copy the cell ranges

The undeniable strategy: Select the source cell reach, reorder them into your primary exercise manual. The burden: This technique is exceptionally problematic in the event that you need to manage a few worksheets or cell ranges. Then again: For only a couple of reaches it’s most likely the quickest way.

Strategy 2: Manually duplicate worksheets

The following strategy is to duplicate or move one or a few Excel sheets physically to another record. Subsequently, open both Excel exercise manuals: The record containing the worksheets which you need to combine (the source exercise manual) and the upgraded one, which ought to include every one of the worksheets from the different documents.

Select the worksheets in your source exercise manuals which you need to duplicate. Assuming there are a few sheets inside one document, hold the Ctrl key and snap on each sheet tab. On the other hand, go to the principal worksheet you need to duplicate, hold the Shift key and snap on the last worksheet. Like that, all in the middle between will be chosen also.

  • When all worksheets are chosen, right snap on any of the chose worksheets.
  • Click on “Move or Copy”.
  • Select the objective exercise manual.
  • Set the tick at “Make a duplicate”. Like that, the first worksheets stay in the first exercise manual and a duplicate will be made.
  • Affirm with OK.

One little tip as of now: You can simply move worksheets starting with one then onto the next Excel document. Far and away superior: If you press and hold the Ctrl-Key when you simplified the worksheets, you make duplicates.

Strategy 3: Use the INDIRECT recipe

The following technique accompanies a few weaknesses and is somewhat more muddled. It works, on the off chance that your documents are in a methodical record request and simply need to import a few certain qualities. You construct your record and cell reference with the INDIRECT equation. Like that, the first records remain and the INDIRECT recipe just looks into the qualities inside these documents. In the event that you erase the records, you’ll get #REF! mistakes.

We should investigate how to assemble the recipe. The INDIRECT recipe has just a single contention: The connection to one more cell which can likewise be situated inside another exercise manual.

Duplicate the primary source cell. Glue it into your primary document utilizing glue extraordinary (Ctrl + Alt + v ). Rather than sticking it regularly, click on “Connection” in the base left corner of the Paste Special window. Like that, you separate the total way. For our situation, we have the accompanying connection:

  • =[160615_Examples.xlsm]Thousands!$C$4

Presently we fold the INDIRECT equation over this way. Besides, we separate it into document name, sheet name and cell reference. Like that, we can later on change one of these references, for example for various variants of a similar record. The total recipe appears as though this (kindly likewise see the picture above):

  • =INDIRECT(“‘”&$A3&$B3&”‘!”&D$2&$C3)
