How to run xquery dynamically on file listing from directoryseleneplatt at comcast.net seleneplatt at comcast.net

I'm a complete newbie at xquery and am trying to execute a query dynamically on all files in a given directory, rather than hardcoding a particular file into the 'doc()' call. I've tried using 'collection()' but am unclear as to how to get it to work. I did see this thread on x-query.com: Query Through Multiple Files but the closest anyone came to the answer I was hoping to find was to hardcode a *list* of files to traverse. Is there anyway to do something like: for $x in collection("xmlfiles") where 'xmlfiles' is a subdirectory containing the actual xml files I want to use? I would need to know the exact syntax, as this is all new to me. Thanks!
