Manipulating strings directly might achieve what you desire. (In[3] uses 
string concatenation, while In[4] reads the contents of the file from 
within Mathematica.)

In[1]:=
a=11+6

Out[1]=
17

In[2]:=
a>>trial12

In[3]:=
"The answer is "<>ToString[a]>>>trial12

In[4]:=
!!trial12

 From In[4]:=
17
"The answer is 17"
