Macro to import multiple TXT files (without column headings) from a fixed directory into a single worksheet

Please reference the original question in the "Related Solution" link (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Visual_Basic/VB_Script/Q_24032194.html)

RobSampson provided the attached code in an earlier question and it works great to import multiple .txt files into a single Excel workbook. However, It appears that this code expects column headings in the source files to work properly. The first file in the list is imported in its entirety but subsequent files have the first row omitted. How can I modify the code to work with source files without column headings.

Thanks for your help!

My data does not have column headings.

Change this bit
            If intLastBaseRow > 1 Then
                intLastBaseRow = intLastBaseRow + 1
                intFirstRow = 2
            Else
                intFirstRow = 1
            End If

to this:

            If intLastBaseRow > 1 Then
                intLastBaseRow = intLastBaseRow + 1
                intFirstRow = 1
            Else
                intFirstRow = 1
            End If
