Alain,

Read the file names in a list and either loop over this list to read
in the data files or use Map or Apply to handle the list at once.

You keep on asking questions on file names and don't seem to make much
progress, do you? It looks like you're missing a bit of Mathematica
basics. I'd suggest you read more of the Mathematica introductory
texts.

Cheers -- Sjoerd
