I need to import multiple files in text format which are written by another
system. I don't want to use math link at this time.

The basic routine needed is

SetDirectory  ["c:\dumpdir/myreports"]
Label [beginproc]
flst= FileNames[ "*z.txt"]
Goto beginproc

using the above file list, I need to import and run each file, then erase
each file after processing,then look for new files.

Any advice?

The current program only loops once..
