1, I have multiple unstructured log files with different formats/Type of file i.e,  : .log, .GTI, .txt files 

2. I want to read them all into a single data step    eg: file1.log, file2.GT1, file3.txt into a single data set. 

3. I tried to import them using "infile 'C:filepath\*.log" but I will be missing the files from other formats. Is there a way to upload all of them at once?

If you want to ALL files in the directory then 'C:\path\*.*' if just the explicit extenstions then place the diffent file name bits within parentheses and use quotes such as

infile ('C:\path\*.log' 'C:\path\*.gti' 'c:\path\*.txt')

 

When getting something a bit off like this I tend to use a FILENAME statement to create a reference to my input files as then any of the actua INFILE options are easier to find.

I think, the INFILE statement (unlike the FILENAME statement) requires additional quotes around the parenthesized list:

infile "('C:\path\*.log' 'C:\path\*.gti' 'c:\path\*.txt')";

Thanks ballard. I used the filename to get the names of all the files I imported.
