This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Are they all in the same directory? Do you have a list of the all the files? –  Nifle Jul 26 '12 at 11:08
They are all in the same directory and I don't have a list of the file names. –  CLiown Jul 26 '12 at 11:10
Then JC2k8's answer should do what you need. Don't forget to come back and accept it later if it does. –  Nifle Jul 26 '12 at 11:12

Pull out your command line and let's go:

copy /a *.txt concat.txt

This will concatenate all txt files in the same directory into one file named "concat.txt".

/A indicates an ASCII text file
