This is an FAQ that has been addressed several times in this forum. You can find a detailed response at this URL: http://library.wolfram.com/mathgroup/archive/1998/Apr/msg00243.html > Also without any success I have tried to read in those filenames written > in another input file.

Scan[ ( data = Import[#, "Table"]; newfile = StringReplace[#, ".dat" -> "-new.dat"]; wfile = OpenWrite[newfile]; (* Insert additional operations here. *) )&, listOfFileNames ] -- P.J.
