Importing multiple TMX files to the TM - suggestions needed

I'm using SDL Trados 2006 and I have to import multiple TMX files to my memory (literally, very many files). Is there a way I can import more files (or all) at once instead of doing it one by one (which would take hours to complete)?
Thank you very much

Point to the folder with the TMs and give a name to the output file.

Or use SDLX Maintain, then export the resulting SDLX TM into one file you can import in Trados.

the main idea Apr 9, 2009

well to explain things a little better- i have this zipped volume of .tmx files (over 1000 per zip file) and i want to import them to a memory. i unzipped the volume to a folder and i found out much to my surprise that i couldn't select multiple files for import (either thru ctrl+ or shift+). so my question was- am i condemned to add each separate tmx one by one?

SDLX Maintain Apr 10, 2009

as Grzegorz stated. SDLX Maintain is the only workaround. Set-up an SDLX TM and import all the TMX and export the whole thing for Trados use.
