Try this (after changing the folder path to suit your setup):

local files : dir "C:\Documents and Settings\Dimitriy V.
Masterov\Desktop" files "*.txt";

cd "C:\Documents and Settings\Dimitriy V. Masterov\Desktop";

foreach file in `files' {;
	insheet using `file', comma clear;
	/* do your stuff here */
};
