In the folder location section click on the Browse button and select the folder with the files you want to merge. After you do that you see the path returned in the UserForm. You can also set the level of subfolders in the dropdown (max of 9)
In the section “Which Files” select the type of files in the dropdown that you want to merge. If you use the first option 'XL?' it will merge all type of Excel files (xls, xlsx, xlsm, xlsb).

Use the Paste data next to each other option if you want paste the data from each file next to each other instead of below each other. If you set your fixed range for example to A1:A100 and check this check box it will use one column for each file in the combine sheet. If your range have two columns it will use two columns for each file in the combine sheet.
If your workbooks have an Open password you can fill in the open/modify password in the two text boxes, it is no problem if there are also workbooks with no password in the folder.
Click on the Merge button:
When you click on the Merge button it will create a new workbook for you with two worksheets:
