Good Morning/Afternoon-

I am seeking guidance on process scheduling and automation, specifically, downloading/extracting/importing multiple .csv files into a single worksheet. The .csv files are all posted online as .zip files, and the latest files are posted near the top of the page. Here are the static staging links to the files for reference:


Here are the process steps I envision for each of the files:
- download the most recent (top) file with '_csv.zip' in the name
- extract file to pre-specified directory for staging
- open .csv file
- copy data beginning in specific cell, all the way down to last cell populated (sometimes will span multiple columns)
- paste data in macro worksheet on specific worksheet, in specific cell
- close .csv file without saving
- repeat process for remaining reports

Any guidance - or references - on how to move forward with this is very much appreciated - thank you!
