Thus, I am keeping the (input) file names constant but the contents of each of these input files may change from one case to another case.

Hi Amelia,

I think you have just won the Posting Guide Medal of Honor for a message 
containing such a detailed description of the problem. I also think that 
what you need is:


where you want the name of the variable in the file "input1.csv" that is 
read into the object named "name1". If this sounds confusing, read in 
the file as in your excellent example and then execute the above command.
