Are the file names consistent? Could you not just have multiple bulk insert commands? There isn't anything stopping you from doing a bulk insert of file1.csv, then bulk insert file2.csv and both insert into the same table. Any particular reason for doing this with a sproc instead of using SSIS? SSIS was built for this type of process. If the file names are not consistent and you can't use SSIS then I would start looking at powershell.

I would seriously consider using LogParser, I explain how it can be done in my blog here http://www.simple-talk.com/community/blogs/jonathanallen/archive/2010/07/05/93370.aspx

We can import multiple csv file through SSIS but in express edition i don't think there is any option for SSIS.

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
