I did something similar the following way:

datadir ="C:\\TEMP\\DATA";

ReadDataFile[filenr_, dir_]:=

          ".txt",Number,RecordLists ->True]; ]

Do[data[i] = ReadDataFile[i,datadir],{i,1,200}]

Hello Mathgroupers!
I have two questions about reading files into Mathematica 3.0 :

1) When using ReadList["A6E24001.txt",Number,RecordLists->True]
   sometimes the file gets read, !and sometimes not! and I get the
   "File not found" What could be going on?

2) I need to read 200 such files, with names like A6E24001.txt,
A6E24002.txt, A6E24003.txt, ..., A6E24200.txt.
  Is there a way to do it automatically?

Thanks a lot for any help any of you can give me. Happy New Year! Sergio
