 ====== Joining Many CSV Files Together ====== ====== Joining Many CSV Files Together ======
 +===== Warning =====
 +There is a requirement that the files be the same format. The reason is there is no matching up of invoice number to invoice number and description to description. The routine just adds one file to the end of the next. If you have headers at the start of each file you should probably remove them. The routine could be upgraded to skip the first line after the first csv file, but it doesn'​t do that now. As the name suggests it just joins all the files together. Good luck
