The Consolidation Assistant add-in for Microsoft Excel is designed
to help you consolidate data from multiple workbooks or from multiple
worksheets. It is compatible with Microsoft Excel 2007, Excel 2010, Excel 2013, Excel 2016, and Office 365.
One of our customers recently received 47 workbooks and needed to get data from each sheet named "data" in these files.
With the Consolidation Assistant, she was able to first create a new workbook that pulled the data sheets (and renamed them so she knew where they came from) into one workbook. At this point, she had 47 sheets.
She then used the consolidate sheets feature to consoldate all 47 sheets into one worksheet. She could then use pivot tables and data filtering to analyze the data
The following is the Consolidation Assistant's main menu
which illustrates its many features:
Consolidation can be done several
Consolidate multiple worksheets in a workbook into one worksheet - You can select the worksheets to consolidate or consolidate all worksheets
Combine worksheets from a list of workbooks
Consolidate specifc worksheets from multiple workbooks into one workbook. Automatically rename the sheets to the names you want in the new workbook
Combining worksheets from a list of workbooks
is often a multi-step operation.
- First, the Consolidation Assistant helps you to create a list of files and their worksheets. For those
sheets you wish to consolidate, you just
type the name to use in the consolidated
file to the right of the existing name. You then tell the Consolidate Assistant to consolidate these sheets into a new workbook.
- When the
consolidation is finished
you will end up with a workbook containing each
of the sheets that you specified.
- You can then use other features in the Consolidation Assistant to either combine these sheets together
or to extract specific ranges from each of the sheets.
The Consolidation Assistant has several
features that allow you to conveniently view your data. One freezes panes on all
selected sheets. Another sets the same cell on all selected sheets
to the upper left corner. And at the same time sets the zoom to the same
setting on all the worksheets.
Once you have the data consolidated into one
you can use the search features of the Consolidation
Assistant to extract ranges from selected worksheets:
- For example,
if row 50 is the total row for a
group of sheets
you can extract this row from those sheets. If the total
row is identified by the words "Total Row" but is not always the same
one can use the search for matching text and extract the total row
One of our customers used the Consolidation Assistant to consolidate a survey worksheet he had sent out to over a 100 managers. The worksheet had responses scattered all over it .
The customer first combined all the survey sheets using the Consolidation Assistant into one workbook, with each sheet renamed from "survey" to the manager names.
Next, he used the extract feature of the Consolidation Assistant to extract values from the same cell on each sheet and place on a new worksheet, which became his database worksheet.
Another customer with a similar situation but had to use the Consolidation Assistant's search and extract option because he forgot to protect the sheet from users inserting rows! As a result data was never in the same cell on all the sheets. But the Consolidation Assistant came to his rescue!
