A couple of additions to this list:

Option III: Use Stata's odbc commands within a loop

Option IV: Use Stat/transfer, which can be run from within Stata either within a loop or using it's batch facilities (I think).

Option I
=====================================
1. Backup your data
2. Write a VBA script that will:
2a. set the sheet you need as active
2b. export the file in a CSV format (only the current sheet will be exported)
3. Cycle through your files calling the procedure in #2
4. Import the resulted CSV files in Stata and append

Option II
=====================================
1. Backup your data
2. Save everything as XML
3. Use -xmluse- in Stata, which provides options doctype(excel) and
sheet("sheetname")
4. Save and append (#3 and #4 in cycle)

Dear Stata List,

I am working on a project where we get excel data that has several sheets,
for example:

data.xls-sheet1, sheet2, sheet3, etc
data.xls-sheet1, sheet2, sheet3, etc
data.xls-sheet1, sheet2, sheet3, etc
.
.
.
datan.xls-sheetn1, sheetn2, sheetn3, etc

We have several of such data sets, over n=200, say. Of these excel data
sets, we are only interested in one sheet, say sheet2. How can one append
these several sheet2s in one stata data sets in a simple program short of
coping one at a time and then appending them?
