Here what i am trying to do:

I have a list of the names of excel files, for example

s={"red carpet.csv","red box.csv","black carpet.csv","black box.csv"};

i am selecting the csv files with the name red(for example) by doing

`selectfromAll=Select[s, StringMatchQ[#, ___ ~~ "red" ~~ ___] &];`

Now i want to create a dynamic box using this command, the output in this example is two check box : "red carpet.csv" and "red box.csv"

a=CheckboxBar[Dynamic[selected], SelectfromAll, Appearance -> "Vertical"]

I want to select one or the two check box, then use the information to import this two excels files, like for example


Hope my description is clear

Any suggestions?

thx in advance

s = FileNames["C:\\*.csv"];
selectfromAll = Select[s, StringMatchQ[#, ___ ~~ "rob" ~~ ___] &]
Pane[Column[{CheckboxBar[Dynamic[selected], selectfromAll, Appearance -> "Vertical"], 
     Button["Import", imported = Import /@ selected]}]]
