    VBA to merge multiple workbooks with demarcation

    Pls, I need help on how to merge multiple excel workbooks into single worksheet but with demarcation. I mean I want to know where one workbook data starts and ends, preferably filling the entire first column with workbook name.
    What this mean is that as each workbook is copying to the new worksheet, it will pick its workbook name and use it to fill entire first column in the new worksheet and do that to all workbooks.
    I had tried the code below before but I was not able to know where one workbook data starts and ends. And I need that knowledge to be able to proceed with further analysis.

    Sub Button2_Click()
    
    Dim path As String, ThisWB As String, lngFilecounter As Long
    Dim wbDest As Workbook, shtDest As Worksheet, ws As Worksheet
    Dim Filename As String, Wkb As Workbook
    Dim CopyRng As Range, Dest As Range
    Dim RowofCopySheet As Integer
    
    RowofCopySheet = 2 ' Row to start on in the sheets you are copying from
    
    ThisWB = ActiveWorkbook.Name
    
    path = GetDirectory("Select a folder containing Excel files you want to merge")
    
    Application.EnableEvents = False
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    
    Set shtDest = ActiveWorkbook.Sheets(1)
    Filename = Dir(path & "\*.xls", vbNormal)
    If Len(Filename) = 0 Then Exit Sub
    Do Until Filename = vbNullString
    If Not Filename = ThisWB Then
    Set Wkb = Workbooks.Open(Filename:=path & "" & Filename)
    Set CopyRng = Wkb.Sheets(1).Range(Cells(RowofCopySheet, 1), Cells(ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count, ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Columns.Count))
    Set Dest = shtDest.Range("A" & shtDest.UsedRange.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell).Row + 1)
    CopyRng.Copy Dest
    Wkb.Close False
    End If
    
    Filename = Dir()
    Loop
    
    Range("A1").Select
    
    Application.EnableEvents = True
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
    
    MsgBox "Done!"
    End Sub
    Thanks alot

    With Wkb.Sheets(1).UsedRange
        Set CopyRng = Intersect(.Cells, .Offset(RowofCopySheet - 1))
    End With
    Set Dest = shtDest.Range("A" & shtDest.UsedRange.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell).Row + 1)
    Dest.Resize(CopyRng .Rows.Count).Value = Filename
    CopyRng.Copy Dest.Offset(, 1)
