Import multiple files with multiple sheets from folder

Hello everyone!

 

I have a folder with Excel files. Each Excel represents a whole year and have multiples sheets, one for each month of that year. I need to import all the month sheets of all the excel files from the folder. It's that possible? I tried to do just the normal way I always do when I import multiple files, but only one sheet from each file is imported...And I need them all, because I need to identify each month_year.

Hi marina_oliveria

 

It's a bit manual initially but you could:

 

1. Get data -> From Folder -> browse to the path/file location.

2. Navigation step: choose one sheet ( Jan).

3. Expand out all data.

 

Similarly, duplicate the previous queries and change the navigation step to the required sheet. OR perform this file from folder step multiple times and select the Navigation sheet ( Feb .. Dec).

 

Finally, Append all Final Data tables into one master data table.

 

Please accept this solution if it resolves the query.

Hi @marina_oliveira 

Can you provide a couple of those files you are trying to ingest as example? If necessary with dummy data (but the same structure as the original ones). That will help greatly in finding an adequate solution
