          Diane,

           

          Some questions,

           

          Are you wanting to use Monarch to combine the files or would any method do?

           

          Do you have any (or is there anyone with) relevant programming/scripting experience that you can call on?

           

          Which version of Monarch do you have access to?

           

           

          Are the files basic text files (as from a word processor for example) or are they delimited text files that could be used as a source for a database?

           

          The best approach for you to take will depend somewhat on the answers. There are several approaches that will work.

           

          I look forward to your update.
