How do you open every file in a directory one by one

This is probably child's play, but I'm new to VB:

How do you choose a directory and then open and then close every file in it one by one?  I know how to check to see if a file exists in a given directory, but I can't figure out how to open them all automatically.  They'll all be the same type of file (HTML).

(I'm doing this in VBA for Word, if it matters.)
