I have a number of files, all of which have a common ID variable. I'd like to combine the files (adding variables to existing
records or cases). Any way to do this in Excel? I've done many searches, but maybe I'm not using the correct terminology. In SPSS lingo, it is a FILE MERGE, ADD VARIABLES. What say the Excel pros?

What is the fastest way to copy a formula?
If A2:A50000 contain data. Enter a formula in B2. Select B2. Double-click the Fill Handle and Excel will shoot the formula down to B50000.

I, also, would dearly like to know how to do precisely that using Excel instead of SPSS. Surely it must be possible? I hope someone has the answer.
