Say that I want to try and open 10 files. If none of these exists, I want an 
message to appear. But only if NONE of these files exists.

I know how to handle this with one file. But I don't know how to do that 
with more than one.
So the program should try and open all 10 files and if, and only if, none 
of the files exists I want en error message to appear.

Thanks for your help guys!
