importing multiple text files

can anyone tell me the solution to this problem?

How to read multiple files in SAS.

FILENAME myfiles ("a.txt", "b.txt",”c.txt");

FILENAME myfiles1 "a.txt";

FILENAME myfiles2 “b.txt”;

FILENAME myfiles3 "c.txt”;

A&B ?

Re: importing multiple text files

'A only' is sufficient, 'A & B' is just confusing, if fileref is the same and you do A first, then B, B will override A, resulting in a wrong outcome, if fileref is different, B is just redundant.

What does A refer to?  What does B refer to?

Re: importing multiple text files

I had the same question.

And my hint would be, since I can think of at least one other approach, "only" is probably out.
