    Thanks for your reply Alan and Youtham.. Let me answer Alan First..
    1. Each file contains around 1000 records.
    2. I am Sorry I can't answer ur 2 nd question it is hard to tell. Actually each file contains 25 columns and I need to append only 10 columns which is common in all the files.. Just to explain u with an eg I told u that it has 5 columns and need to append those 3 common (emp name, emp email & amount).
    3. Yes all the field names which I need to append are definelty the same in each files
    and I know Access basic, I can make a table, link a table..but don't know to write queries..(I am at the learning stage) I appologize..

    I am sorry, I would like to send the sample file but it is so large to send it...

    Eagerly waiting for a solution.
    Thanks in advance

    Re: appending workbooks

    Hi Alan,
    Thanks for ur response, I read the entire post but it does not suit to my suituation, If you could see that picture that I have attached you can have a clear idea what I am looking for. Please let me know if I need to explain more.. Let me explain it through a small eg:
    I have 5 files.

    File one contains
    1. Emp name
    2 Emp No
    3 Emp Email
    4 Emp Address
    5 Amount

    2 nd file contains
    1. Emp name
    2 Emp Email
    3 Emp Address
    4 Amount
    5 Emp No
    Note: It is not in the same order as in file one.
    3rd file contains
    1. Emp name
    2 Emp Email
    3 Amount
    4 Emp No
    Note: Emp addres column is missing.
    But if you look into it all the three file contains Emp name, Emp Email and Amout. I just want to consolidate or append the values for these Emp name, Emp Email and Amount to a single file.

    As it is not in the same order and one or 2 columns might be missing in each file it is hard to copy and paste, but all the file contains Emp name, Emp Email and amount as common, I just need that to get append to a single file

    As there are more than 50 files it is hard to copy and paste. Just we need to append the values based on the column names.

    Any help is greatly appreitated.
    Please let me know if I need to explain more .... I badly need a resolution.
    Thanks in advance.

    I have 50 workbook files. One workbook is a master report that is made from the 50 workbooks. I have to cut and paste the data from each workbook into the master workbook. I am in the process of automating the workbook to simplfy the process. I have reviewed several of the post here and have not seen a solution to my problem. Is there a way to automatically (marco,code) append the data from the 50 workbooks into the master workbook?

    Also I have attached a file representing what I need in a picture view.
    Thank you
