Some comments:

1) Avoid overwriting global functions like list as a variable name. If you
do that, you won't be able to use list() later in your code, and nor can
anyone else who imports your code.
2) I'm a bit iffy about automatic variable generations. Why not just use a
dictionary? What do others on comp.lang.python think?
3) I'm getting an error from your code, and it doesn't match with what you
seem to get:

# output
ELM004_DIF
ELM004_SPC
ELM004_RFL
ELM004_SSS
ELM004_REFR
ELM004_ALB
ELM004_AMB
ELM004_NRM
ELM004_MVE
ELM004_DPF
ELM004_SDW
ELM004_MAT
ELM004_WPP
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "Test.py", line 33, in <module>
    print ELM001
NameError: name 'ELM001' is not defined

Did you get any compiler errors? I'm using Python 2.7

Cheers,
Xav
