Maybe an example of what you are trying to do? I think you need to assign the file name to a variable and then you can write that variable to a file (and use it for the alloc statement but I am unsure as to what it is you are really trying to do.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

This sounds like it is part of your other topic . . .

If you explain what you are actually trying to accomplish, someone might be able to offer more useful suggestions.

You need to show some more realistic input data and the output(s) you want from this data.
Hope this helps,
