one mistake..

Code:

for X in $FILES01 
do
    name=$(basename $X) 
    value=$(cat /file_path/$name) #Yeah i know that is useless of use of cat - searching for another option. 
    awk -v VM="$value" '{ print $0, VM }' $X >> /combine/$name

I have a question just to learn things better... is there a possibility to combine all of these into one file instead of many where the lines would look like following
thisjames2050
thishanna3450
thatjohn1430
thatchris1730
basically to add a column with the name of the file they are coming from
not sure how to add the name of the file to the columns
Code:
FILES01="F1/*"
for X in $FILES01 
do
    name=$(basename $X) 
    value=$(cat line-count/$name) 
    awk -v VM="$value" '{print XXXX, $0,VM}' $X 
done > test01.txt

elixir_sinari: it works Smilie but can you explain the AWK line? sorry I am trying to learn so want to make sure I understand everything that I use

for combining all the files into one file. just replace > with >> and give your output file name in awk command.
