Hi again

   I have several files with extension .jpg of the type

"C1822_8_025_1.jpg", "C1822_8_025_2.jpg"
"C1943_11_025_1.jpg", "C1943_11_025_2.jpg" .....

I know the first part of the name  which was given by : "" ~~ 
ToString[NAME2]  with NAME2: C1822, C1943 ...

How to use FileNames in order to have, for a given NAME2 all the *.jpg 
files in order to import them ?

   The command: FileNames["" ~~ ToString[NAME2]*".jpg"]  does not work

  Thanks !!!
