Hi:

I wonder if it would work if I combine content of two xml files into one? Would it work the same way as if the recipient system is getting one file after another?

for example:

 <envelope ack="info" transaction="multi">
....
</envelope>
<envelope ...>
...
</envelope>

The reason I need to do this is to make sure the first xml file get read/processed before the second one.

Thanks.

no.  XML standards requires a SINGLE root element.  
You can however do something like this:
<Envelopes>
  <Envelope>...</Envelope>
  <Envelope>...</Envelope>
</Envelopes>

Parsing requires that the first block is also the last/closes itself with nothing trailing.
