Consolidating data in access
Using the Consolidate tool, you can combine and summarize data from multiple files or sheets.
This wiki How teaches you how to consolidate data from different files or worksheets in Excel.
The following VBA code also can help you consolidate duplicate rows in the worksheet, but at the same time, the original data will be destroyed, you need to backup a copy of the data. Hold down the ALT F11 keys, then it opens the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window. Click Insert Sub Combine Rows() 'Update 20130829 Dim Work Rng As Range Dim Dic As Variant Dim arr As Variant On Error Resume Next x Title Id = "Kutoolsfor Excel" Set Work Rng = Application.
And then click another column name that you want to combine the data, and click Combine to choose a separator to separate your combined values, see screenshot: 4.
You consolidate data by category when the source areas do not share the same cell coordinates in their respective worksheets but their data entries do use common row and/or column labels.
When you consolidate by category, you include these identifying labels as part of the source areas.
After you specify all the source areas (including the cells that contain these column and row labels), click the OK button in the Consolidate dialog box to execute the consolidation in the destination area.
When consolidating spreadsheet data by category, you must specify whether to use the top row of column labels and/or the left column of row labels in determining which data to consolidate. Note: If you want to use this code, you’d better make a copy of the file to avoid destroying the data, and this code is only applied to two columns. And then select the column name you want to sum the values and click Calculate Sum or other calculations as you need. Click Ok to close dialog, then you can see the duplicates are combined and the corresponding data in another column are added up together.
