Consolidating excel workbooks into one

Each range of data should be arranged in cross-tab format, with matching row and column names for items that you want to summarize together.

Do not include any total rows or total columns from the source data when you specify the data for the report.

For example, you can’t add any of the following features, and in some cases you can’t even change the existing items: If you do need to create a shared workbook, check the list of restricted features, and make sure you have everything set up exactly the way you want it, before you share the file.

Test everything after you share the file, because things might not work the way they did before. Find out exactly what the workbook’s purpose is, and why multiple people need to use it.
