How do you consolidate data from multiple sheets in to one? [open thread]

Posted on February 19th, 2010 in Excel Howtos - 50 comments

Long time PHD reader and mother of a lovely kid, Michelle, sent me a question in email that provoked me to write this post,

I was wondering how to tabulate large amount of information gathered through surveys. Where I work customers are constantly handed survey sheets in order for us to measure how the service -among other things- is being perceived. Now, to put all that info into a spreadsheet (plus charts) can be really tedious.

So far I manage to get the job done by assigning 1 to 4 values were 1 sucks and 4 is great and so there I go column after column (each column is one individual survey) filling my 1 to 4’s answers. I know there’s an easy version with VBA; problem is that I am a total ignorant in that area. Any suggestions?

How to Consolidate Data from Multiple Excel Sheets (or files) in to one?

Few ideas that would make consolidation easy:

  • Make sure all the source files are in the same format: make a template that your colleagues can use to input the data every month. This way you can use 3D references to summarize the data.
  • Create a user form so that your audience can enter information in that instead of directly entering it in spreadsheet.
  • Find out if the survey or other type data collection can be fed to a database. This way, every month we can import the data using data connections.
  • If we actually end up with sheets with different data formats, spend sometime and study the anomalies. Then you can develop a small macro or find-replace routine that would clean the data. [related: clean data using excel]
  • Try to save the files as CSV and open them in a regular expression capable editor like Notepad++. Now match and clean up data.
  • All else fails, get a strong cup of coffee, put on some music, roll your sleeves and start alt+tabbing.

But more than these ideas, I am interested to know how YOU solve this problem.

I think this is a very common problem. Since I have very little experience in the area of consolidating data from multiple sheets in to one, I couldn’t give her any real advise. So now I am turning to you.

  • Do you use any add-ins or macros to consolidate data? What is your experience like, what would you recommend?
  • What shortcuts, ideas and cool things you use when working on data from multiple sheets?
  • How do you usually clean / normalize the data?

Please discuss.

    Hi,

    in my previous position as business controller I solve this problem through VBA and Access. The task I had to complete was to create and manage the customer portfolio for different sales representatives. The process was set up in this way. Given several Excel files for different sales divisions and within each division different kind of customer, the sales representative had to type in the customer he was interested in and some specification about the customer type. The creation of the complete customers list and its splitting was done quite easily but always keeping the same data structure for each file. It would be problematic to have different files with different layouts. To avoid mistakes and corruption of the files by the sales representative I protected the worksheets and created validation list (when possible) or user form to let people type in correctly the information. Once customers were selected I asked to the users to post the file on a collaboration portal (it can also be fine to have all the files in the same directory). To collect and consolidate all the files I used VBA and Access. In particular I wasn't interested in all the available informations in the Excel Files but just some of them, therefore I just focused on exporting cells containing typed-in values and unique customer number to match this information with master data.

    Based on this work I created these articles where there are all the basics to create such kind of solution:

    In this context I wonder it anyone uses MS Infopath for these purposes.

  3. m-b says:

    Maybe the 'consolidate' option in the Data tab of the Ribbon is useful in this case?

  4. noone says:

    1. I make a form/survey that looks like this:

    Name _____
    Age ___
    Occupation ____ (chose from list)
    etc

    where the titles are in column A and the form fields in column B.

    2. I put validation and validation lists on the form fields.

    3. I protect everything except for the form fields.

    3. I save the file as an Excel template.

    4. I let people use the template, send me the files and save them in a directory.

    5. I use a VBA-makro that loops through the files, read the values and add them in the bottom of a list.
    In the list each survey is on an own row.

    What I am particulary satisfied with is that I made it possible to change the form/survey over time and add/remove fields.
    This is because I did not hardcode the location of the fields but instead use a function that reads each field in the form like this:

    Function ReadField(NameOfField as String)
    'Find row where column A is NameOfField and return the value in column B
    'If not found just return nothing
    End Function

    Obviously having similarly formatted sheets as input in the process is a time saver.
    There's a great free add-in that does multiple sheet/workbook consolidation : RDBMerge from Excel MVP Ron de Bruin
    http://www.rondebruin.nl/merge.htm
    There are also commercial add-in solutions... but the previous tool is so great I wonder why I would pay for something else.

    You can also use the Consolidation tool integrated in Excel : Menu Data/ Consolidate...
    There you can specify various data ranges, and the tool will consolidate them using the specified function. It works great (very quick) but uses no formula, so you have no audit trail.

    • aalok says:

      Wonderful tool and just the thing I wanted to merge the files. However, the tool merges the content in a new excel file. I want to merge the content in the file which has a template same as that of individual files. Can I specify the name of the file where to merge the content and can I merge the content retaining the template? Please reply soon.

    "5. I use a VBA-makro that loops through the files, read the values and add them in the bottom of a list."

    This is how I would do it as well. In addition to step 5 I would include code that would clear the folder (move individual files to an archive so we have a record) so the directory is ready to receive a new set of surveys.

    I did an application to do mass import of text files to excel and access. Copying the text files to an uploaded folder and clearing the import folder was one of the users favorite features.

  7. iesmatauw says:

    1. import to some db(access/sqlite/mysql)
    2. make the query (some group by, sum, etc)
    3. make the pivot table in excel or just press the "analyze in excel" button from access

  8. I just did this by hand yesterday for 11 months (each month a separate file) of 15 minute data logger results. In this case I still wanted each month in a separate sheet, just all in one file.

    I opened all files, and went to work on moving the single tabs from each into one file, this had the benefit that the tabs were named by month, and as I moved them the redundant file closed itself.

    Hi!

    Regarding CSV files there is a great tool out there called CSVed by Sam Franke. All I can say is WOW! It allows you to almost anything you want or need to do when editing a CSV file.

    Here is the the URL: http://csved.sjfrancke.nl/index.html

    I have used version 1.4.9 and a new version 2.0.1 is available.

    Bob Phillips has a nice little routine posted out there somewhere. I think at http://www.ozgrid.com/forum. Uses the File Scripting Object so you'll need to set the reference in VBA through Tools..References. Post back if you need any help. The routine loops through all files in a folder, copies the specified data to last row of a specified workbook and worksheet. I get even greater control by creating a spreadsheet for my users and embedding some VBA for Outlook so they can just click a button and the spreadsheet is sent to me as an attachment. This way I can control the subject line and write a back-end process to hadle specific messages in specific ways.

    We use MS Infopath to create the forms and aggregate with Excel. The integration of Outlook, Infopath, Excel and Sharepoint was our biggest consideration and it works very well. And it's all automated which was our priority.

    Hi. To consolidate the tests data of multiples products into one file, I created a template and a macro that sends the info to a "database" file. All the data that I want to save are in a named range and my macro loops and copy all named range to my "database" file. The users only have to click one button and the operation takes 1 or 2 seconds max.
    I also used the method of looping though files in a folder in the past.

  17. Ian says:

    You could use Google forms, which would get the people filling in the survey, loading the data directly into a Google spreadsheet.

    This can then be saved as a Excel spreadsheet, if needed

  18. MikeH says:

    Consolidating data across spreadsheet I have only found one really effective solution - vba macros. In my case it required each of the source sheets to have in column A a common unique identifying code on each row of data which could be cross referenced so data could be vlookedup against this code from the final master collation sheet and then the vlookup formula converted to resultant (paste special value) to reduce file size and allow transferability of output sheet. NB when tried to publish resultant collated data to sharepoint hit a little known restriction of 230 columns max - very annoying.

    To facilitate all of this had a column reference sheet which in col A had source column name, col b source sheet the named column was on and col C the column name which would be column output name (this allowed to change name to be more acceptable in output sheet).
    Overall with col ref sheet and a master unique code list macros created from 8 differing source sheets one master collation sheet 200+ columns by 400+ rows in about 25 secs. Not bad - wish Microsoft would come up with a wizard to do such things instead of creating local bespoke solutions in VBA.

    Only other collation I have done is when needing a questionaire completing I set up an Infopath form published to a SharePoint site and then got the recipients to complete via New in Sharepoint and on pressing submit button content published / sent to sharepoint datalist which autocollated it for me but still allow to see original form if need be. This was instead of excel and collating by macro which I too used to do until I discovered InfoPath / SharePoint combo.

    Hope you find these comments of interest and support.

    I used a VBa macro to do this. I had to find 34 items with very specific criteria. In order to find which item ID #s I needed to pull I consolidated all the information about each item into a single workbook. Every item has a unique ID. Different sections and goups of people generate reports about each item containing different formats and different variables. I made one macro that would take all the different work books for whatever date range I specified (by code not by formula, I was in a time crunch and did not modify the code to be very flexible) and put the information into only one work book. I then used a macro to delete headers and blank rows so I had a contiguous data set. Then using my same consolodation macro I took all the dissimilar forms and put the masters into their own sheets within one huge work book. I then used VLOOKUP formulae to create a masterlist containing the item ID number and then all the different variables that we had logged. This took about 8 hours to come up with from scratch mostly and some nice code posted online. Here is the big macro that did the heavy lifting.

    @ Veronica:

    I know that you can reference excel workbooks that are not open and manipulate them, but due to the nature of Excel you have to open the workbook in order to manupulate data in that work book. You can, however, prevent the workbook from appearing to be open.

    can you modify it to Move the Selected Data to another Existing WorkBook "Database.xls" sheet1 in MY documents if the Database.xls is active ? or not...

  27. Joe says:

    @ 24
    Does your macro work as intended? You just need to take the range that this Macro selecs and move it someplace in another book?

  28. xcruc1at3r says:

    Right Joe I just need to Move the Selected Range(The way we select the range with the movie or with Shift+ Arrow keys) to move in another Book For.eg Database.xls which already exists in my Documents folder, Not in the New Book.

  29. Joe says:

    @ 26
    So theres a fewways to do it.
    1) First you would have the book you want to go to open, then you would change the VBA code in the design window each time you wanted to change the destination book.

    2) You have the macro open the book from a given filepath and then the macro moves the data.

    3) When the macro is activated you are prompted with the browser window much like when you open a file, you navigate to the destination folder, select the destination book, then the macro moves the data to the book you selected.

    I don't really have time to write up all three, which would you like to use? Do you need to preserve the data at the source or is this more of a cut and paste situation?

  30. xcruc1at3r says:

    2) You have the macro open the book from a given filepath and then the macro moves the data.(we can change the FILEPATH In his type macro as well) right!

    ITS THE COPY PASTE SITUATION NOT CUT PASTE.

  31. xcruc1at3r says:

    JOE Adding, and selection should has the option of multiple selection

  32. Joe says:

    Do you want the macro to make the multiple selection programmatically or do you want ot run the macro after you have made the selection yourself?

    Sorry to be late to the party, but I recently came across another tool that may help solve the problem posited in this post. Granted, it works best when you can design your systems ahead of time (and may not be of much use for those who have a poorly formatted set of data already), but it could be a lifesaver for those who regularly consolidate spreadsheet data.

    XLhub (http://www.xlhub.com) ties spreadsheets to a MS SQL Server database. It's an Excel plugin that provides a two-way connection, so updates to Excel spreadsheets are recorded in the database and updates in the database are pulled into the spreadsheet. XLhub keeps an audit trail, too, so if there's an error in the data, you can see who made the mistake and roll back to the point where you like the data.

    If you have people taking survey data over the phone, for example, you could have each one use a spreadsheet that XLhub links to the database. Each of their additions would get centralized and would then be accessible to anything that can interact with MS SQL Server.

    Late to the party: I just found this article by Diego O. from Microsoft, which might be an alternative to consolidating all those pesky csv/ text files into one, without hitting the 1m row limit in Excel. Very handy

    I have a different situation. I have a master file which i use to update several other "child" files. The master file contains daily price movement data of different stocks. Each file that I need to update contains this data in a consolidated way. These files need to be sent to clients as per their subscription (whichever scrip's data they have subscribed to).

    So all files need to be updated with today's data for further analysis by clients.

    Is there a way to update all files based on data from master file without opening each file.....?

    Hi,

    I am looking for a macro that can do the following for me.
    I have multiple worksheets with the same set of rows where the % work complete and Planned % work complete changes every week.
    I would like to collate this data per summary section from each worksheet into a master sheet and then use this to create charts.
    Each summary task has a unique ID across all worksheets.
    I have a macro that pulls data from Project to excel every Friday.

  46. Savy says:

    I have four common columns in all worksheets:
    Track, Unique ID, Planned % Work Complete and Actual % Work Complete. In the Master sheet that I want to generate, I would like to have the Track and Unique ID and append the Planned % Work Complete and Actual % Work Complete columns for each week.

    Thanks.

    Hi,
    I need to extract data from an online survey form to excel spreadsheet.
    I want to create a macro which imports the survey results directly into excel, by just using a command button maybe. Please help.

    Note: This is not via Google forms.

    Thank you!

    I'm trying to consolidate data in multiple sheets of a Workbook. Data will be like below, 4 quarters on column, below that weeks (13 weeks in a quarter) and below every week there will be 2 columns (budgeted and actuals). The rows include Categories. Similarly 10 worksheets are available for each account. So need a consolidated sheet which can plot a table like below.

    JAS 15
    Category Week 1 Week 2 Week 3 Week 4 Week 5 Week 6 Week 7 Week 8 Week 9 Week 10 Week 11 Week 12 Week 13
    C1 - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    C2 27 27 27 27 27 27 27 27 27 27 27 27 27
    C3 - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    C4 - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    C5 - - - - - - - - - - - - -
