I'm using something like that:
Public Const rootdir = "c:\Data\"

Sub import()
    Dim nr as int
    file = Dir$(rootdir & "*.csv")
    nr = 1
    Do While file <> ""
	DoCmd.TransferText acImportDelim, "ImportSpec", "NewTableName-" & nr, rootdir & file, True, , msoencodingCentralEuropean
	file = Dir$
	nr = nr + 1
    Loop
End Sub
