I have 100 different csv in a folder and 100 in a second folder. i used the following code to load 6 specific files from each folder:
files =[dir(filename1);dir(filename2);dir(filename3);dir(filename4);dir(filename5);dir(filename6)];
sheets =[dir(filename1);dir(filename2);dir(filename3);dir(filename4);dir(filename5);dir(filename6)];
Is there a way to combine 'files' and 'sheets' into a single structure or table? Alternatively, I know that if I load the files in two datastores I can use the combine tool. But is there a way to specify specific files to be loaded from a folder like I have done here?

Yes. The "Files" field of the datastores contains the full filenames. You can extract only the ones you want (like the first 6) and combine into a cell array.
