Hi, here is one of many possible solutions: Table[StringForm["FullPath/No``.dat", i], {i, 1, 5}] here is a slightly more complex solution: Table["FullPath/MyName" <> ToString[NumberForm[i, 3, NumberPadding -> "0"]] <> ".dat", {i, 8,12}] Daniel Lorents wrote: > Hello, > I'm using Mathematica 6. > I'd like to know how to define a file name (to be later used in Export) so > that the file name contains the value of an index variable i. > To exemplify, in Fortran this task would be accomplished by something like: > > character(len) :: FileName > ... > write(FileName,'(A,I4.4)') 'MyName', i > > These lines would produce filenames which, for i=1,2,... are MyName0001, > MyName0002, ... > > Is there any neat way of doing the same with Mathematica? > > Lorenzo > > >
