display polygons according to different string in one field

I have some polygon shapefiles.
Each of them has a field C****. (such as C8745, C1276, and C3498)
The field has strings such as S and W.

Problem 1
For one shapefile,
I want to differentiate S from W using colors (yellow for S and blue for W).
Please kindly advise ideas or codes to show the shapefile.

Problem 2
For about 50 shapefiles,
I want to differentiate S from W using colors (yellow for S and blue for W).
Please kindly advise codes to display the shapefiles.

Thank you.
