How can I combine multiple sheets into one sheet?

Options

Hi there!

I currently have 23 separate sheets, all with the same headers that are currently separated by location. I now want to combine all 23 sheets into one so that I can easily pull data from the sheets into a dashboard. How I can I combine the rows from each of these sheets into one sheet?

    Hi @Weston Barnes,

    You could go into each sheet, select all rows, right-click and select "Copy to Another Sheet" or "Move to Another Sheet", and then select the sheet you want them moved or copied to. Do this for each sheet except for the one that everything is being copied into.

    Best of luck!

    Thank you so much, Ray! If the original sheet that I move the rows from is updated after I copy the rows, the new/combined sheet will not be updated in real time, correct?

    @Weston Barnes,

    That's correct. It's a once and done action. There's nothing waiting for future updates that would apply them to another location.

    Is there a way for the destination sheet to be updated when the source sheet is updated? New rows are added to the source sheet daily and the destination will be used for a specific team to edit and modify for their needs that are different than the needs of the source sheet users.

    Hi @andyhob

    I hope you're well and safe!

    You could use cross-sheet formulas combined with either a VLOOKUP or INDEX/MATCH structure to connect the sheets, and when you update the source sheet, it will reflect on the destination sheet.

    To connect them row by row, you'd use an Autonumber Column in the Source sheet and add a so-called helper column to manually add the row id on as many rows as you think you need in the Destination sheet.

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!

    Best,
