Default Insert multiple HTML files into one word DOC

I'm using Word XP. I have a number of folders with html files inside. I
need to insert hte html files into a word document. The html files are
named using letters and a sequential numbering sequence.

I don't want to use the File Insert dialog for each insertion. Is
there a way to automate this task? Ideally, I'd like to invoke a
command that would insert all the html files in a folder into one
document.

Thanking you in advance for your sugestions ...

without code, there should be a way. Insert AND LINK the first file. The
resulting field code shows you the syntax. Then, you can replace the
number with a properly formatted SEQ field. Then you should be able to
copy/paste the entire field and update the SEQ field within it (F9).

Thank you Robert. I found another way:

In my word doc, I select INSERT -- then highlight all the docs in the
folder and click ENTER. They insert one after another, in order by
filename.
