Combining several midi files?

Due to unfortunate circumstances, I need to find a way to combine several sheets of midi music into one. Does anyone here know how to do that, or what program could take several different midi files and combine them into one?

I figure this is the most appropriate place to post this question, since the music is being composed for a game.

Uhh, if you can open multiple files in the program you're using, then just open whatever files you need, select what notes you want, and copy/paste into the main file.

If it was that easy, I wouldn't have posted it up here. :/ The problem is the copy and paste doesn't copy over areas with notes already placed. It'll only add it to empty spaces or in between over notes, it never overlaps them. (The program I use is a freeware called Chords)

Oh... so you WANT it to overlap?

Well, if you dont already have too many tracks (i doubt you're using all 16) you can make a new track, then just paste it on there. Most MIDI programs (that i use, anyways) have the ability to "merge tracks". That's usually the name of the command, and I'm sure this program can do the same.

Yeah, if you just make a new track and set it to the same "channel" and use the same instrument patch, it should be just like overlapping. Not sure how Chords is, I use noteworthy for most things, and anvil studios on random occasions.
