copy from multiple wbooks (with inconsistent headers & data) into one master wbook

Hi All,

I have been trying to create a template that can allow user merge multiple worksheets from multiple workbooks into one master workbook. The content being copied into the master workbook should be based on the header pre-defined in at Row 1 (not case-sensitive).

I found on the net to merge wsheets and workbooks but it doesn't do validation check on the content before it merges. it just copy the whole range that content data as per column counted in that worksheet. This gives me the hassles because in the multiple sheets and wbooks have inconsistent arrangement of columns and I have to arrange all these first one by one first before I merge them.

Master Workbook should have all data based on the headers below:-
Name | Age | Mobile# | Occupation | address | Gender

Workbook1 sheet 1 have data based on headers below:-
Name | Gender | Age | Address | Occupation | mobile

Workbook2 sheet 4 have data based on headers below:-
Name | Occupation

Workbook 3 sheet 1 have data based on headers below:-
name | age | mobile# | occupation | address | gender

I hope I have explained my problem clearly. Would appreciate your expertise to help.

Thank you in advance.

Best Regards,
