I need to get a word cound from 140 excel files.

Does anyone have any ideas how I can do it?

I don't want to calculate cells with just numbers and they have to be words.

Better still If I could get all the text into one word document, that would be even better.

Many thanks

Re the "getting it all into word"...need more info on

a) folder structure & naming convention of the files
b) contents of the workbooks
