Yes, I've read this help page. But as far as I understand, this only 
allows to generated a "paged" file name, but not to include the value of 
a variable in the file name. Foo is a dummy name. It is only the 
numerical part of the name what variates in the samples above. I guess 
it won't be difficult to get Foo from values in a vector once I 
understand how the whole thing does work.
