Overview
Combine two Google sheets based on common columns
Five simple steps of Merge Sheets will guide you through the process of joining data from two tables. You no longer need to waste your time on building complex VLOOKUP or INDEX/MATCH formulas or copy-pasting data manually to join two sheets.

If you have at least one common column in both tables, e.g. product ID, the add-on will update current values for the same records and/or insert all the missing information.

You will benefit from Merge Sheets since it does the following in one go:

  • Update existing values (e.g. replace old prices with new ones)
  • Update all or only empty and new cells
  • Bring only non-blank cells from the lookup sheet
  • Pull additional columns with new records (e.g. add a column with discounts)

The tool quickly compares key columns and finds all the necessary updates, no vlookup formulas needed. Besides, there are ways to mark the changes:
  - highlight them with colors
  - identify them in a status column
  - clear the existing coloring

You can use Merge Sheets whenever you need to merge two tables and draw the latest changes to the main one.

What's new:
V1.9
New features:
- Merge sheets from different spreadsheets. Your lookup table doesn't have to be in the same spreadsheet as your main table anymore. You can select any file from your Drive on the second step and pick any sheet in it as a lookup one.

Improved:
- Decide where to place the result. The related option on the last step offers not only to update your main table but also out the outcome to a new spreadsheet.
- UX: auto-select behaviour. Now the add-on highlights only the table where your cursor stands rather than an entire used range.
- UI: images as hints are added. These schemes show how certain settings work. Each option has an "i" button next to its name. Click on it to open a related scheme within the add-on.
- UI: minor text alignment changes in some messages.

Fixed:
- The lookup range loaded too long if A1 cell was hidden/filtered.

V1.8
New features:
- Scenarios. Save the options you use most often and give this set a name – this is your scenario. Once you run it, your data will be processed right away, and you won't need to go over the same steps again.
- Match case. Consider records in key columns as matching only if they are written in the same text case.
 
Improved:
- Increased cell limit support. Now you can merge data till hitting the limit of 5 million cells per a spreadsheet.
- If Data validation rules are violated on your sheet, the add-on now explains what cells interfere with its work.
 
Fixed:
- Couldn't select a lookup sheet if the main sheet is opened on Step 2.
- Update only if cells from the lookup sheet contain data: "0" (zero) was treated as an empty cell.

V1.7
Improved:
 - UX; the add-on will offer the most possible actions and warn about possible mistakes and lags.
 - Range selector UX. If you had slow Internet connection or server response, you could get an incorrect range. We've significantly reduced that possibility.
 - Small screens and minor issues UIs.
 - Performance. The new version of the add-on processes colored cells faster.

Fixed:
 - Removing Alternating colors.
 - Processing cells with dates.
 - Corrupting main table formatting.

V. 1.6
You can use sheets with any data amount! There is only one limitation - Google spreadsheet can’t contain more than 2 million cells. 

Fixed:
 -Formulas were replaced with values
 -The add-on considered the same data with different format unequal
 -Minor bugs

Improved:
 -Processing large amounts of data
 -Progress bar with percentage has been added
 -Auto select range 
 -Speed

Added:
We introduced yearly subscriptions, you can still enjoy a fully-functional trial version of the add-on for 30 days.

v. 1.5
Fixed:
 -The add-on prevented from choosing a sheet on Step 2

This is probably the single most useful Google Sheets addon that I have installed. I used to just use the free version (limited to once per day), but found it so useful that I ended up buying a subscription, which is extremely affordable and saves so much valuable time. Recently, when I had trouble using the Save Scenario feature in a certain way, I asked Merge Sheets about it and they extremely helpfully rolled out a feature improvement within days! Five stars for the Merge Sheets team!

Hello, There's a fully-functional 30-day trial period at first. After that, you are to order either yearly or lifetime subscription, both with a one-time payment, or uninstall the add-on. As for the tool not working, please email our support team - support[at]ablebits[dot]com - with the description and the screenshots of the problem. We'll be happy to help.

I love the ability to save my scenarios since I use this daily to organize an xslx file from my ecommerce store that generates data on several spreadsheets that I need to combine into one CSV file. Huge time saver!
