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
Else
    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
Else
    TmpStr = TmpStr & "," & Ln
End If
Loop
Print #tf, TmpStr
Close #ff
Close #tf
Next i

End Sub

ReDim txt(10, i) As String
While Not ts.AtEndOfStream
    sIp = ts.ReadLine
