Parse many files at once to merge-tool

I would like to create a tool/skript with model builder, which combines several files (dbfs) to one.
The merge-tool does it the right way. But by now, I haven't found a way to hand over f.e. 10 files to the merge-tool before it starts merging. If I use an iterator, the iterator hands the file over to the merge-tool and the merge tool processes the file immediately. The result is again 10 files and not one. 

How can I fill the merge-tool input within the model builder, so that it creates only one file from several input files?

Quick help would be great,
