Build an SQL database that auto-updates

I would prefer to be contacted before revealing too much. But in a nut shell, I have a lot of flat files (text files) in various folders. These folder names need to be primary keys or ids that will link multiple tables together. These tables will be composed of data from the text files. So the data from a text file from each folder will form one row of a table. Each text file will have its own table and all these tables are to be linked together based on the primary id, i.e, the folder name. There needs to be a script that auto-updates the tables or populates every hour or whatever in order to make sure that data from new folders also make it into the database.
