Hi goretailpro,

SQL Server comes with a command line utility called "sqlcmd". You can read all about it's use here.

Hope that helps.

You are looking for the -i parameter when using SQLCmd.

While the -i parameter does not accept wild cards there is nothing stoping you from using a batch file or a VBScript to fill them.  Alternatively you can list all the SQL queries one after the other as in:
-i file1.sql, file2.sql, file3.sql,...

Do you know of a 3rd party software that can look at a folder and load all SQL files into a db?

No.  You can certainly do that with SSIS, it is just that you will have to roll up your sleaves and create an SSIS package to do it.  On the other hand if you are using SQL Express, than SSIS is not an option.
