Default Create a batch file from a number of Excel File

I have a folder (on a network drive) which contains a number Excel
file which are all created from one single Excel template file. There
is a hidden Worksheet named "DATA" in each of these excel files.

I wanted to write code that would do the following:
1) From all the Excel files on the network drive select only those
that were modified today
2) From the selected Excel files, copy the values from Range (A1:A75)
on the "Data" worksheet of each selected file & paste these values to
a new file in column A (from A1:A75). Next, go to the second Excel
file in the folder that is modified today & copy range (A1:A75) values
from the Data Worksheet of the second file & paste them in Range
(B1:B75) of the new file.
3) .. and so, i.e. copy Range(A1:A75) from each of the excel files
modified today & place is sequentially in ranges (C1:C75), (D175)
etc of the new file
4) Name and save this new file with the name "Batchfile" and place it
in the same folder.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.
