    I sent my proposal with two screenshots, but I see only one. Can you confirm to me that you see the second one? In the second one there are the results, so it's fondamental that you see it to judge my work. Thanks in advance for your kind reply. In case, contact me to tell me how to send the second one.

    Hello. I have read the instructions you wrote in the excel. I only need further clarification with the instructions given. Do you need the 24hour weather data? If so, that would mean if I start gathering data from DarkSky API on November 15 1am, I must take the hourly data up to November 16,1am?

    As per my understanding. Macro should create file Weatherdata.xlsx. And create 1 sheet for each zipcode*.csv file like sheet1 Name = at, sheet 2 name = de ... So there will be total 4 sheets in Weatherdata.xlsx workbook. Now I collect temperature and other weather data and update weatherdata.xlsx which will add more rows. Now calculate mean temperature and total percip. Now sheet at will have 100 columns, of which 1 column is row headers so total 99 columns. Now macro will create 99 csv files with names like eg. at7000_2019-11-13.csv. Again for next sheet i.e. ch contains 110 columns so 110 csv files. But we got a problem here sir. There are columns which has same zipcode. If we save those files separately we cannot. Please check the screen shot. https://pasteboard.co/IGus4DK.png

    One question. Do you want this program to run for only this data set or for others too ? If we are to go by your instructions, you need a program that reads the *.csv files in a particular folder and then consolidate data into a sheet based on the zipcodes. But if the formatting of each csv file is different, the program won't run. For eg: the first csv file (_at.csv) seems to be a cleaned up one with properly formatted as an excel sheet but with a csv extension. Whereas the others are raw csv files , which needs clean up or perhaps not . So these kinds of mix ups will render the program useless. Coming back to the original question, if you want the program to run only for this data set, then i can create a code that reads the csv file ( _at.csv) separately and copy it into the master sheet and then loop reads all the other ones . Hope i was able to convey the issue. Thank you

    Hello, I think that I can create windows software for this. It will have a user-friendly GUI. You will be able to use it as many times as you want. I will also offer you free support in case if something stops to work in the future. If that's ok with you I will submit my entry tomorrow, the explanatory video will be included.
