William, assuming you have the path for the folder in a variable "tFo"

on mouseUp

   put the defaultFolder into tOldFo -- so we can set the default  
back when we've finished
   set the defaultFolder to tFo
   put the files into tFileList
   filter tFileList with "*.txt"
   repeat for each line L in tFileList
      put url ("file:" & L) & cr after fld "theField"
   end repeat

   set the defaultFolder to tOldFo
end mouseUp
