Hi All,

I want to display the worksheet name of every worksheet from each workbook in A cell at the time of merging all the workbook into one. please help as i am unable to do so.

To display the worksheet name, i am using below mentioned macro:-

Sub SheetNames()
For i = 1 To Sheets.Count
Cells(i, 1) = Sheets(i).Name
Next i
End Sub

but also here i want to add the sheet name in all the worksheets in workbook.

For merging data, i am using below mentioned macro:-

Public Sub ConsolidateSheets()
Dim Wb1 As Workbook
Dim Wb2 As Workbook
Dim ws1 As Worksheet
Dim ws2 As Worksheet
Dim ws3 As Worksheet
Dim rng1 As Range
Dim rng2 As Range
Dim rng3 As Range
Dim rngArea As Range
Dim lrowSpace As Long
Dim lSht As Long
Dim lngCalc As Long
Dim lngRow As Long
Dim lngCol As Long
Dim X()
Dim bProcessFolder As Boolean
Dim bNewSheet As Boolean

Dim StrPrefix
Dim strFileName As String
Dim strFolderName As String

'variant declaration needed for the Shell object to use a default directory
Dim strDefaultFolder As Variant

bProcessFolder = (MsgBox("Process a single folder (Yes)," & vbNewLine & "or single file (No)", vbYesNo, "Application Scope: Folder or single File") = vbYes)
bNewSheet = (MsgBox("Extract all data to a single sheet (Yes)," & vbNewLine & "or a target file sheet for each source sheet (No)", vbYesNo, "Output Format: Single sheet or sheet by sheet collection") = vbYes)
If Not bProcessFolder Then
If Not bNewSheet Then
MsgBox "There isn't much point creating a exact replica of your source file :)"
Exit Sub
End If
End If

'set default directory here if needed
strDefaultFolder = "E:\Excel_files"

'If the user is collating all the sheets to a single target sheet then the row spacing
'to distinguish between different sheets can be set here
lrowSpace = 1

If bProcessFolder Then
strFolderName = BrowseForFolder(strDefaultFolder)
'Look for xls, xlsx, xlsm files
strFileName = Dir(strFolderName & "\*.xls*")
strFileName = Application _
.GetOpenFilename("Select file to process (*.xls*), *.xls*")
End If

Set Wb1 = Workbooks.Add(1)
