Access 2010 Import all .txt files in Database directory

I have a template database that I move to different directories based on which who’s data I need to process.  I need a button on my form that will find the location of the current database and import all .txt files located in the subdirectory “Import Files”.

I need a little more help.  Attached is an example of a file I will be importing.  Also I will be importing it into a table name "imports" with field names "Function" and "SSN".  The "2," is the function and the 9 digits that follow is the SSN "111111111".  Can you refine your code based on this information?
