Replying to myself in bad form, while I am curious if this can be done, we solved this by concatting all of the individuals into one and loading that.

Subject: 10g External Table Location Parameter
Does anyone know if the location parameter when creating an external table can be wildcarded? Our scenario is we want to have all the .txt files in the directory added to the table at once. I'm been trying many different formats, but no joy so far. It takes the string as a literal whether I'm using OS or Oracle variables.
LOCATION ('*.txt') <-- this is where I want it to grab all the .txt files...
