Good Morning All,
I need to merge two seperate work books, of average 20 columns width
Both do/do not hold matching information.
Work Sheet B
What I would like to do is create a single merged workbook which has all the fields merged into a single row - without duplication (obviously, I can backtrack and delete manually if necessary)

Re: Merging Data in 2 Separate Excel Workbooks
If the First Name and Last name are equal to both work sheets, I will just sort them by First Name and Last name and copy the results into a separate work sheet.
If the names are different you will have to use Access:
This can be easily done with Access and SQL, just import both work books into different tables to access and use the create query wizard, play with the results until you will get the result you want. Access will also solve the duplicate problem easily.
You will have to use join properties:
Read help about join properties and understand how this works...
Afterward you can export it back to Excel or use Copy/Paste.
If you can't use Access and have only Excel:
You will have to use Vlookup on various fields until you will get the result you want. Its a hard work but in the end you will get the same result as access.

Merging Columns In Excel
Now that we've clarified what merging columns actually means, we can explore how to do it. The first step is to perform the merge for the first cells. Let's go back to our first example and suppose that we are merging column A that contains first names with column B that contains second names. We'll put the merged columns into column C. To merge cell A1 with cell B1 we woul type the following into cell C1:=A1&" "&B1
It looks like you have chosen the wrong data file. Probably an earlier version of your data still present in some folder. Check these Do you have column headings for every column? Make sure which folder contain the file? What exactly is the name? When you are in the Microsoft word, make sure you select the correct data file for your mail merge. If you have selected the correct data file, when you attempt to insert the merge fields, there is no way, it give wrong field names. The only reason you get the erong field names is because you have the wrong excel file for your data. Fix this problem first, then the rest will sort themselves out. Have a good day. luciana44
You need to go into format cells and then merge them together and you should be just fine. Highlight the cells that you wish to merge and then right click and then click on format cells and then merge cells together.
Assuming 1) you're using Excel and 2) the addresses are written:
1234 Main St., Anytown, CA 90210
You can use "Text to Columns" feature (selected "Delimited" and check the box next to "comma"). This will split the data into 3 columns (address | city | state and zip). Then run the "Text to Columns" again on the "state and zip" column and use "Fixed width" to separate the state from the zip.
If the assumptions I used are incorrect, clarify and we'll try again.
1. Open up both workbooks.
2. Copy one worksheet from one workbook to another using.
Right click on the tab of one book and Select "Move or Copy"
3. A dialog box will appear..Next to the "To book" select the workbook you want to move it to.
4. Be sure to select the 'create a copy' box in the bottom left of the dialog box.
5. Sort each worksheet by students name. Data..Sort.
6. Copy the scores from one sheet to another.
7. You then you can manipulate the scores and compare anyway you like by using formulas in different columns.
