How to Merge CSV Files?

You may wish to merge several CSV reports into a single file. This is useful if you wish to merge:

  • Raw data files of installs and in-app events. These reports have the same basic structure so by merging them you can see whole user lifetime actions
  • Files of the same report from different time spans

There are many ways to merge files, which depend on the desktop OS you are using. Here is how it can be done on any Windows PC:

1. Download all csv files to an empty folder, e.g. "C:\temp"
2. Go to the command prompt (click the Windows icon and type "cmd")
3. Type "copy *.csv all.csv" - all CSV files are merged into a single csv file called "all.csv"

  • On Linux/Unix based systems type "cat *.csv >all.csv"
