I have about 5000 small .dbf files that I need to import into my database program (Filemaker6) Is there there some kind of merge process or program, or some other way of avoiding having to do this process 5000 times?

The issue is not with Filemaker - I'll open them with Excel or anything that opens a .dbf file, I just need to get that 5000 into a much lower number. The files are all the same format and contain the same fields.
