There are a variety of ways of creating sequential files in
Mathematica. And while this could be done using an explicit Do
loop, this would be my last choice. Suppose I wanted a list of
things sent to various files with a given base name with a
sequential number appended to that base name. I would do that using

MapIndexed[Put[#1, basename<>ToString[#2[[1]]]<>ext&, listOfStuff]

Or if I needed something more readable than what Put creates,

MapIndexed[Export[basename<>ToString[#2[[1]]]<>ext, #1,
"Table"]&, listOfStuff]

Or if I wanted to use explicit values rather than sequential integers:

MapThread[Put[#1, basename<>ToString[#2]<>ext]&, {listOfStuff, listOfValues=

These simple examples can easily be embellished in numerous
ways. For example, NumberPadding could be used to format numbers
to a fixed width which could be very nice.
