Adding Files to Books

I would like to now if the following is possible. I have some books on my computer that are multiple files (usually 2-3 files). I want to know if it's possible to add the book to my calibre library and then add to that book the other file(s) so that all files are merged together into one. When I use the add file option it replaces the book with the file I'm trying to add to it. I hope I made sense and thanks for any help

It may be possible. Hard to tell in your case unless you give more details about what ebook format and files you are thinking about.

When you import a book in HTML format, any associated files like illustrations, will automatically be added.

It is also possible to merge ebooks using a plugin.

I am trying to convert a pdf file into an epub file. I can get the files to convert just fine. I just can't seem to combine more than one pdf into the ebup file.

Yes, as PeterT says, you first have to convert all the PDFs to ePub. Then you can merge the ePubs using the plugin ePub Merge.
