Dumb Stupid Question About List and String

Hello Xavier,

Thank you :)

Well what Iam trying to generate is that kind of result:

listn1=['ELM001_DIF', 'ELM001_SPC', 'ELM001_RFL', 'ELM001_SSS',
'ELM001_REFR', 'ELM001_ALB', 'ELM001_AMB', 'ELM001_NRM', 'ELM001_MVE',
'ELM001_DPF', 'ELM001_SDW', 'ELM001_MAT', 'ELM001_WPP']

listn2 = ['ELM002_DIF', 'ELM002_SPC', 'ELM002_RFL', 'ELM002_SSS',
'ELM002_REFR', 'ELM002_ALB', 'ELM002_AMB', 'ELM002_NRM', 'ELM002_MVE',
'ELM002_DPF', 'ELM002_SDW', 'ELM002_MAT', 'ELM002_WPP']


The thing is, the first list will be generated automatically. (so there will
be unknow versions of ELM00x....)
that why Im trying to figure out how to genere variable and list in an
automatic way.

Can you tell me if its not clear please ? :P
my english still need improvement when Im trying to explain scripting
