Hi Venkat,
Using file system object you can do this.
Sample code

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim fs, f, f1, fc, s
    Dim ThisLine
    Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set f = fs.GetFolder("c:\myfolder")
    Set fc = f.Files
    For Each f1 In fc
     s = f1.Name
     Open "c:\myfolder" & s For Input As #1
     'Your code
     Close #1

End Sub

Dim strTmp As String
    strTmp = Dir("C:\", vbNormal)
    Do Until (strTmp = "")
        If (Right(strTmp, 4) = ".htm") Or (Right(strTmp, 5) = ".html") Then
            Open strTmp For Random As #1
                'do stuff to file
            Close #1
        End If
        strTmp = Dir
eeyore7250's way is easier and with less overhead than FSO, but I'd change it to look for all *.htm* files at once so you don't need the if:

dim strFilename as string
dim strPathname as string

strPathname = "C:\My Web"

strFilename = Dir$(strPathname & "*.htm*")
while strFilename <> vbNullString
  open strFilename for input as #1
  debug.print input$(100,#1)
  close 1
  strFilename = Dir$
