The following rules allow the consolidation of Lists using Consolidate:
* The structure of the Lists must be identical.
* The headings of all rows and the leftmost columns in the Lists must contain the same topic.
The number of columns and the number of rows do not have to be identical; nor does the internal order of the text.
* The Lists must have a single label row and a single column for labels.
