Merge or Append... not sure which to use and how to use it...

Hi, 

I have a single excel file with 50 tabs. Each tab represents some Server Silo Data. Each tab has the same 4 peices of data. I want to simply merge all the tabs into one large single table. And in the process only have one header, something alone the lines of a merge all tabs and remove the top row from all tabs except the first?

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi sharpedogs,

Did you mean that you a Excel which have many sheets in it, and in each sheet, the header are all the same? If so, you could load all sheet in power bi , then use "Append Queries", then it will combine into one.
