Is there a way to use the Folder Option under GetData to get files that all require a processing?

For example, if you have Text files that all require deleting columns 1 and 4, and require naming the headings and including the source name in a column. Can you handle this with the folder option and some M Scripting?

@sonisick Yes you can use folder option to combine files from it and then do some processing to have one table. i have personally used in many cases where i have many csv files.

That makes sense. Read them in, and then process them all.

Do you have any M Script files where you process all the files you just read in?
