@bullitt7, best to be more specific. Also say what you have tried. And for sure say what os you're one. I would say that I might be able to come up with 50 different ways to do this.

Sorry, I was kidding. Actually, you cannot automatically join multiple files with built-in tools. Manually you just copy-paste each file to the end of another.

If you need an automated solution, then a macro would be needed, and more data wrt what are your requirements.

From your question it appears you are attempting this in Base. Text and Spreadsheet tables are not database tables. They are an easier way to create accessible methods for data to be used in other modules such as Writer. In fact, you can do very little with these in Base. You need to create actual tables.

You should refer to the LO documentation for more information - click here.

Also, it is helpful to get more information in the question. See Getting Started - click here.
