What is a workbook?

A workbook is a spreadsheet file. By default, each workbook in Excel contains three pages or worksheet

The term spreadsheet is often used to refer to a workbook, when in actual fact, spreadsheet refers to the computer program, such as Excel.

So, strictly speaking, when you open the Excel spreadsheet program it loads an empty workbook file consisting of three blank worksheets for you to use.

How do you combine three excel documents into one

For simplicity I'll assume each Excel document is one worksheet.
We'll call them Document1 Document2 and Document 3.

We'll move Document2 and Document3 to Document1

Open all three documents. In Document2 click the EDIT menu, then select MOVE OR COPY SHEET... In the box TO WORKBOOK, select Document1, then click OK.

In Document3 click the EDIT menu, then select MOVE OR COPY SHEET... In the box TO WORKBOOK, select Document1, then click OK.

If you have a mouse with right click you can do it as follows:

Open all three documents. In Document2 right click the worksheet tab and select MOVE or COPY. In the box TO WORKBOOK, select Document1, then click OK.

In Document3 right click the worksheet tab and select MOVE or COPY. In the box TO WORKBOOK, select Document1, then click OK.

Whenever I open a new spreadsheet now it automatically opens up a spreadsheet calles PERSONAL. Why is that and how can I get rid of it... I think it started after a did a macro but I am not sure. Thanks,...

You're right - it was caused by recording a macro. When you record a macro you are given the option to store the new macro in "This Workbook", a "New Workbook" (the default), or in a "Personal Macro Workbook". It looks like you selected "Personal Macro Workbook".
The recorded macro is stored in a special workbook called "Personal.xls". This workbook is loaded every time Excel is loaded. If you don't want this workbook loaded, then just delete it or rename it.
The file is buried deep in Microsoft's application data area. On my Vista computer it's in C:\Users\frogfund\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Excel\XLSTART On my Windows XP computer it's in C:\Documents and Settings\frogfund\Application Data\Microsoft\Excel\XLSTART. Depending on your computer your Personal.xls might be in a slightly different location. You might need to do a search using Windows Explorer.
If you are still having troubles finding personal.xls 1. Open Excel, 2. Open the Visual Basic editor (hit Alt-F11 or click Tools-Macro-Visual Basic Editor) 3. Click Tools-References to bring up the references dialog 4. Click on VBAProject in the list. The file location will be displayed near the bottom of the dialog box. Sometimes this might be cut off at the end, but it should give you a good idea where the file is located. 5. Click Cancel to close the dialog.

Same problem - excel files balllooning from 20Kb to 45Mb

This could happen if your workbook is being shared.
1. Make a backup copy of your workbook (Excel file).
2. Open it in Excel
3. Check under Tools > Share Workbook and see if the "Allow changes by more than one user..." option is selected. If so, try unchecking it and save the workbook
4. Check the file size under File > Properties > General tab

Another possibility is that there are a lot of unused cells with "invisible" formatting. To check that you can try pressing Ctrl+End and see where the end of your document is. If it is way beyond your current work area, select those extra columns and rows and go to Edit > Clear > All (Note: This will delete everything on those cells)

Tools protect workbook& sheet

Open the protected sheet... Go to edit and click select all. Go back to edit and click on copy. Open a new excel sheet, go to edit and click on paste. Now you have the copy of the protected sheet without the protection.

After you record your macro do the following.
Open the excel file contains the macro. Go to tools and go to macro and click on macros. Select the macro you wish to add the close operation. Click on Step into... This will open up the visual basic editor. In the code window, at the bottom row you will see End Sub. Right before that row, type workbooks.close
Save the macro by clicking the save button. And you can run your macro to see if it works. I tried, it does :) Good Luck :)

Hi motilal

Follow these steps to create multiple macros

Click the Microsoft Office Button , and then click Excel Options.
In the Popular category, under Top options for working with Excel, select the Show Developer tab in the Ribbon check box, and then click OK.

Note The Ribbon is a component of the Microsoft Office Fluent user interface.
To set the security level temporarily to enable all macros, do the following: On the Developer tab, in the Code group, click Macro Security.

In the Macros Settings category, under Macro Settings, click Enable all macros (not recommended, potentially dangerous code can run), and then click OK.

Note To help prevent potentially dangerous code from running, we recommend that you return to any of the settings that disable all macros after you finish working with macros.
Open the workbook that contains the module that you want to copy and the workbook that you want to copy the module to.
On the Developer tab, in the Code group, click Visual Basic.
On the View menu, click Project Explorer .
Drag the module that you want to copy to the destination workbook.

I have solution for your second problem.
You just need to use macros to protect all the sheet at the same time. Just open "Macro>Record new Macro" to insert new macros to your files.

This will save some your valuable time.

Consolidate few sheets under 1 excel

What version of Excel are you working with. Newer versions allow you to have multiple spreadsheets grouped together into what is called a, "Workbook." To view the sheets separately, you simply click on the tabs at the bottom of the workbook. The easiest way I know of to join spreadsheets together into a single workbook is to open all of them at the same time, then choose, "View / Arrange All," and they'll be small, but you can grab each one by its tab and drag it to the workbook you want them in. Then you save the workbook (give it a new name like, "Accounting Roll-UP," or, "Consolidated Books," or whatever best describes it) making sure to close all the (now empty) spreadsheets without saving your changes to them (or else you'll lose your 'back-up' data). Voila! You open one file, and all your spreadsheets are available with the click of a mouse.
