I have an excel file with 5 worksheets that have both similar and different column headings. I have tried to import these as different tables and use various join commands to append these worksheets into a single table. I am unsure as to how to insert the excel file. I could certainly email it if necessary.

Hi. I am unable to log a call. I login but it says my email is not registered despite being the one I login in with and is consistent with the one in my about. I tried registering only to be told my email address is already registered.  I have been 'down' for several hours now and cannot log a call. Thanks
