I have a Calc document consisting of dozens of sheets. Each sheet
has several rows (the number varies) and 4 columns of text strings.
Now I need to combine all these text into one single sheet. Every
next sheet (group of records) must be added below the previous one.
Not only that, but I have to add an extra column with the reference
to the name of the sheet that each record (text string) originally
comes from. How can I achieve that?
It seems I didn't express myself clearly enough. What I want to
achieve is one single sheet consisting of all text strings (that are
originally located in different sheets) together with the name of
the sheet where each string was originally located.
I think you are expecting to get Calc somehow to look through
whatever sheets there are and discover their names - without your
having to quote these in your single sheet. I don't know that this
is possible. Here's a suggestion:
o List the other sheet names on your single sheet.
o Now you can construct references to each other sheet using this
list of names. Once you have concatenated whatever other details you
need to each sheet name, you will almost certainly need to use the
INDIRECT() function to convert the resulting string to a reference to
the remote sheet.
o There are two ways forward from that. Either use appropriate
formulae - possibly including something such as VLOOKUP() - to
retrieve and copy the data from the other sheets to the single one,
or else simply construct your calculations on that single sheet
differently, referring directly to the data on the other sheets
without copying it. (The second method may well be more reliable.)
Depending on whether you anticipate adding more sheets later, it may
even be quicker just to copy all your material to a single sheet
manually, of course.
I trust this helps.
