Whille loop not going to next script text file.

I think Its me, but the below simply repeatedly loops through and gets only the first script.  I am a little puzzled as to how to tell it to go to the next script text file, it is my understand the While should do it, but I think I messed up teh code and can't get it to work.
Private Sub Recovery()
'Recovers objects for a specific database.
Dim txtPath
Dim txtFile
Dim strObjectName As String

txtPath = "K:\DatabaseDevelopment\DBScripts_RegE\"
txtFile = Dir(txtPath & "*.txt")

While txtFile <> ""
   Select Case Left(txtFile, InStr(txtFile, "_") - 1)
         Case "Form"
            strObjectName = Left(Mid(txtFile, InStr(1, txtFile, "_") + 1), InStr(1, Mid(txtFile, InStr(1, txtFile, "_") + 1), ".") - 1)
            Application.LoadFromText acForm, strObjectName, txtPath & txtFile
            MsgBox "Form: " & strObjectName & " has been imported.", vbOKOnly
         Case "Table"

         'etc...
   End Select
Wend

End Sub

have a look at this link to get more info on Dir() usage:

http://www.techonthenet.com/access/functions/file/dir.php

MS Access: Dir Function : Dir [( path [, attributes ] ) ]

Dir function returns the first filename that matches the pathname and attributes specified. To retrieve additional filenames that match pathname and attributes, call Dir again with no arguments.
