From time to time you may have a need to stack data from two or more worksheets into a single list. Most users would copy and paste the data together, but you can also use Microsoft Query.
Alternatively, you can use PowerQuery in Excel 2013, renamed Get and Transform in Excel 2016, but those features require far more experience with database queries than the average Excel user has accumulated at this point. Fortunately, Microsoft Query is an alternative that is available in all versions of Excel that can guide you through the process.
The process I’ll describe can work within an existing workbook, or you can pull data from multiple workbooks. The only change you’ll make is with regard to the workbook and sheet names, so for this article we’ll assume you’re combining data from within the same workbook.
