I have put the files in sperate folders like January, February etc. until May.

There are several ways to import text. Choosing the best method depends on the format of your data. Here's a description of some of those methods.
You'll probably loop through each file to read them in individually and then concatenate the data. If you don't already have a list of file names to feed into the loop, you can generate a list of (all) files in a directory using dir().
I got it working now, thanks!
