findit append multiple
leads to Roger Newson's dsconcat, which concatonates multiple Stata datasets into memory. Perhaps this will suit your needs.

I'm trying to append multiple datasets, but "append using" only adds two
datasets at a time. I tried the following program to append "timc1.dta",
"timc2.dta", "timc3.dta"... in one step, but it only appends two datasets.

********************************
program define apx
        local i = 1
        while `i'<=10 {
                use timc`i', clear
                append using timc`i'
                local i = `i' + 1
        }
end
apx
********************************

I'll appreciate any suggestions on how to accomplish this task.
