Thank you for asking, The files are located in one directory. The naming convention for these .rtf file is Corporate ID #_TodayDate(MMDDYY).rtf.
On the directory where these files are saved, there is no other kinds of file. All .rtf files on that direcory need to be printed.
Thanks in advance.

Which RTF files? Are they all in one directory? Is there a list of their
names? All RTF files on the server with timestamps within some range?

I agree. However, if you must do this, perhaps an MS Word or Windows
automation tool will ve better than SAS.
