From here: - http://www.dbforums.com/microsoft-access/1647035-loading-all-file-names-static-directory-ms-access-table.html
I modified to this: -
Dim strFileName As String
FileName = Dir("c:/EPOD/*.XML")
Do While FileName <> ""
    Debug.Print strFileName
    strFileName = Dir()
Loop
This prints out all the xml files in a folder but then errors "Run time error 5 Invalid Procedure Call or Argument"

Basically, I'm trying to process all the xml files in a given folder, can anyone help?

You're referencing "FileName", but your variable is "strFileName", so try this:

Dim strFileName As String
strFileName = Dir("c:/EPOD/*.XML")
Do While strFileName <> ""
    Debug.Print strFileName
    strFileName = Dir()
Loop
