Create CSV table from 2 different source files

Hi everyone I have a cool challenge.

 

I have two xslx files that are filtered down to the data I need. I can list the data fine. But I need to create a single CSV file from 3 specific columns in each of the respective source files. Each source file has a different header name.

 

File 1: A,B,C

File 2: 1,2,3

 

I can't use create file and I can't use update file since the date from the first file would be deleted when adding the data from the second file. I can't use append because each day a new file needs to be generated.

 

I'm sure there's a way to solve this, I just can't work it out.

So I eventually solved this. It was a case of getting the data from each of the Excel files, building each of them as a CSV table, then writing out a file using both CSV tables without using headers in the second table.
