Dear all,
I have some excel files, say sa.xlxs, sd.xlsx, vb.xlsx, ki.xlsx and so forth.
Is there any command for merging all of them in one sheet of another excel file such that the new sheet to contain first the sa.xlxs then sd.xlsx and so forth?

You have to use:
  1. [optional] list = ls() to list the .xlsx files. You can use wildcards.
  2. Import the files with xlsread()
  3. Concatenate the data. One of the function you might need to use is cat() or []. Or refer to the many See Also links in cat()
  4. Write output to excel with xlswrite()
Points 2-4 will usually loop on the list created with point 1 (or user supplied list)

Try points 2 and 4 for a specific file, then add another file (i.e. repeat point 2) then try point 3.
Once you're able to do it for a pair, you can add point 1. and try to write a for loop.
