Importing from multiple CSV files in Easy Excel Analysis

To import data from multiple CSV files in Easy Excel Analysis, first set up the import settings for a single file as described here.

NOTE: The layout and format of the data in all the additional files must be identical to that of the initial file. 

When you reach this page of the import wizard, you can then set up the additional files to import from.

To add files, click on the Add button below the file list window.

If you need to be able to identify each data source and your worksheets do not contain any columns that identifies the source data, you can add additional columns on this page to help identify the data source.  Click on the Add button below the additional columns list.

On this page, enter the column name, type, length, and source of the column.  There are several options available to use the filename or worksheet details.

Using an example file name of G:\data\Sales_Osaka_July2020.xlsx,

  • filename = Sales_Osaka_July2020
  • filename 1st value = Sales
  • filename 2nd value = Osaka
  • filename 3rd value = July2020

Note that the separators can be a dash symbol (e.g. Sales-Osaka-July2020.xlsx), a comma (e.g. Sales,Osaka,July2020.xlsx), or a dot (e.g. Sales.Osaka.July2020.xlsx).  You cannot mix separator symbols e.g. Sales-Osaka.July2020.xlsx.
