If you add a FileListbox you can loop through it and write each file to a new file.This will create a new file with the prefix "new" in front of each filename:

Private Sub Form_Load()
File1.Pattern = "*.csv"
File1.Path = "C:\Somefolder"
End Sub

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim i As Integer, ff As Integer, tf As Integer
Dim Ln As String, TmpStr As String
Dim origFile As String, newFile As String
For i = 0 To File1.ListCount - 1

If Right$(App.Path, 1) <> "\" Then
    origFile = File1.Path & "\" & File1.FileName
    newFile = File1.Path & "\new" & File1.FileName
    origFile = File1.Path & File1.FileName
    newFile = File1.Path & "new" & File1.FileName
End If

ff = FreeFile
Open origFile For Input As #ff
tf = FreeFile
Open newFile For Output As #tf
Do Until EOF(ff)
Line Input #ff, Ln
If i = 0 Then
    TmpStr = Ln
    TmpStr = TmpStr & "," & Ln
End If
Print #tf, TmpStr
Close #ff
Close #tf
Next i

End Sub

ive just copied the file to a 2d array and written it back after transposing.

change the hardcodes acc to ur need

here is the code:

Private Sub Form_Load()

Dim fso     As FileSystemObject
Dim f       As File
Dim ts      As TextStream
Dim sIp     As String
Dim txt()   As String
Dim tempArr() As String
Dim i       As Integer
Dim j       As Integer
Dim k       As Integer
Dim l       As Integer
Dim sOp     As String

Set fso = New FileSystemObject
Set f = fso.GetFile("F:\trials\New Folder\ip.csv")

Set ts = f.OpenAsTextStream(ForReading, TristateUseDefault)

i = 0
ReDim txt(10, i) As String
While Not ts.AtEndOfStream
    sIp = ts.ReadLine
    tempArr = Split(sIp, ",", , vbTextCompare)
    For j = LBound(tempArr) To UBound(tempArr)
        txt(j, i) = tempArr(j)
    Next j
    i = i + 1
    ReDim Preserve txt(10, i) As String

Set ts = f.OpenAsTextStream(ForWriting, TristateUseDefault)

For k = 0 To 9
    sOp = vbNullString
    For l = 0 To i - 1
        sOp = sOp & txt(k, l) & ","
    sOp = Mid$(sOp, 1, Len(sOp) - 1)
    ts.WriteLine (sOp)

End Sub
