MERGEMANY: Stata module to merge many files
Abstractmergemany is an extension to the command merge, providing a flexible way for many 'using' datasets to be merged into one final dataset. Merges can be performed based upon a user-defined list of files, by using the numerical regularity of file names, or by including all datasets of a given type stored in a single directory. mergemany also allows the user to import and merge an arbitrary number of .dta or non .dta files in a single step.
