Maria: Try data4 = {{"050318", "00111529"}, {"050401", "00113120"}}; Do[ ID = data4[[i, 2]]; url = "http://www.swift.ac.uk/xrt_curves/"; <> ID ; s = Import[url, "Text"]; Print[s], {i, 1, Length[data4]} ] The string join you were attempting did not work. I moved the concatenation of the url string external to the Import this way if you wish to test if the url exist before import you can. Somewhere on MathGroup there is code to test for existence of a URL.
