Hi, im working on a survey for some of the different buildings that I deal with, in order to get some basic info from them. Im planning to send an email with this worksheet to 50 other branches, and when they return email the worksheets back to me, i'll need to merge the returned files into one sheet containing all the data.

Here is the data sheet in the raw format that will be distributed.

this is one sheet that has been filled out by one person

this is another sheet that has been filled out

http://i81.photobucket.com/albums/j2...urveypic1a.jpg

this is what the merge of the two should look like, and subsequently there should be data in the 5th row, the 6th row, the 7th row when I import/merge in the raw/filled out data file that was distrubuted.

How to fill five years of quarters?
Type 1Q-2023 in a cell. Grab the fill handle and drag down or right. After 4Q-2023, Excel will jump to 1Q-2024. Dash can be any character.

I thought that pictures would of explained it well, :(

I am going to send my worksheet to 50 people via email. they will return a sheet back to me that has one line of data listing name, location, branch, CONUS/OCONUS. I want to take all 50 sheets and combine them into one single sheet that adds a new line to the main worksheet of data imported back from the emailed returned worksheets.

This is what i'll get back from people :

---------------------------------------------------
name____location____branch____CONUS/OCONUS
---------------------------------------------------
bob____City, KY _____north_____CONUS


and this is what it will look like if 3 people are added to the main worksheet once its merged (as soon as somoene tells me how to do it)

---------------------------------------------------
name____location____branch____CONUS/OCONUS
---------------------------------------------------
bob____City, KY _____north_____CONUS
robert__Idle, OH _____East______OCONUS
James__Small, IN_____West_____CONUS



does this illustrate what im trying to do better ?

snoopdan,

1) Do all workbook returned locate in the same folder?
2) Do they just return with one line of data only?
3) Can you give us Sheet name and exact cell address of the data?
