info

I am importing succesfully multiple text files into Access 2003,
however I need to ad a column in my access table to contain the name
of each file in order for me to identify each record set, any help
would be greatly appreciated, I am using the folowing VB

Public Sub pfImport()
On Error GoTo Err_F

Dim strPathFile As String, strFile As String, strPath As String,
strSpec As String
Dim strTable As String, ynFieldName As Boolean
ynFieldName = False
strPath = "C:\TextFiles\" 'where my files are located
strTable = "NotepadTable" 'the name of my Access table
strFile = Dir(strPath & "*.txt")
Do While Len(strFile) > 0
strPathFile = strPath & strFile
DoCmd.TransferText acImportDelim, strSpec, strTable, strPathFile,
ynFieldName
' Uncomment out the next code step if you want to delete the
'file after it's imported
' Kill strPathFile
strFile = Dir()
Loop
Exit_F:
Exit Sub
