Nice solution @dominiklz.  Great idea to use the CReW Macro!

I've used this inception macro (macro within a macro) technique several times for solving this issue.  Directory tool grabs all file names; first macro finds all sheets in those filenames; second macro downloads each sheet and combines data.

Solution attached. Option 1: manually adjust each spreadsheet to the same schema and sheet names. Option 2: use macros to read everything in.
