Hi everyone,

I'm trying to copy data from multiple workbooks into one sheet in a master workbook. The workbooks are all stored in a single folder on my desktop along with the master workbook and each contains just one worksheet with the same name.

The data in each workbook always starts from row 4 to row X but I need to copy from columns C, D, E and H. This data then gets pasted into the master workbook starting from row 2 columns A to D, the name of the workbook from which the data is copied is then pasted into column E. I then do this for the each workbook until all the data is on one sheet in the master file.

My VBA knowledge is very lacking... I've tried to copy similar answers already posted but not had much luck. If anyone is able to help I'd be extremely grateful!

Thanks

Return population for a City
If you have a list of cities in A2:A100, use Data, Geography. Then =A2.Population and copy down.

Suggest you use Power Query/Get and Transform. Located on the DATA tab. Here is a link to help you.

Thank you so much! I had no idea this function existed. From your reply I was able to find this video which is exactly what I needed and has saved me a lot of time.

Cheers
