Mapping columns from different excel files


Hi All,


I have a scenario wherein I should combine 4 different excel files (for different years) into one. Basically, It's a survey data. The problem I have is, the questions even though they are similar the naming convention is not consistent. Is there a way I can use alteryx and help the client?


Please help!

As its only 4 files I would just simply have 4 inputs, rename in a select and union.  There is a wild card xlsx input which you can get from searching and installing the CREW macros, however the  time you do that you could have read in the 4 manually
