In this article, we’ll learn how to use different functions to consolidate lists.
We use Consolidate to summarize and consolidate data from separate worksheets into a master worksheet. The worksheets can be in the same workbook or in different workbooks. When we consolidate data, it means we are assembling data to update it easily.
Consolidate option has 11 different functions that we can use while consolidating the worksheets or workbook.
