opening multiple files

Hello!

I have about 5000 small .dbf files that I need to import into FM (FM6). Is there a way I can 'collectively' open them, or is there some kind of merge process, or some other way of avoiding having to do this process 5000 times?

If the files were tab delimited text you could just concatenate them and import the result. The only way I can think to do it with .dbf is to create an applescript that would sequentially copy the files to a new file (say test.dbf), import that file into fm, (the applescript would tell fm to perform the import script) copy the next file to test.dbf, and import that file.....etc.

Someone else might have a better way
