2.1? Really? That's prehistoric.

I have done a huge amount of work recently on generating PDFs. The answer from Uncle Oracle is to use BI Publisher: send the data to BI Pub and it will return a PDF no problem. There are licensing implications.

If you are calling the report from a form, then you can specify DESNAME parameter's value, i.e. set it to a desired PDF name.

Or, set DESNAME in the After Parameter Form trigger, such as
:desname := 'test_' || :par_whatever ||'.pdf';

Well, you can do that in a form (loop through IDs, create DESNAME per every ID and call the report using that DESNAME). I don't think that you can do it in report's After Parameter Form trigger (or any other report procedure).

Syntax for what exactly?
Do you not know how to set report parameters in forms - that's documented in form builder help and countless places on the web.
Do you not know how to loop through a set of file names - that's basic PL/SQL and exact syntax would depend on where the data comes from in the first place anyway.

Setting the parameter is documented as I said - so go look at the documentation.
Also as I said loops are basic PL/SQL and exact syntax would depend on where the data comes from in the first place - which is not something I would know.
So give it a try yourself and if you get stuck post what you tried here and we'll help you out.

Sigh - no-one can help you with the syntax of the loop as we don't know where the data you need to loop over is coming from - is it in a table? somewhere else?
No-one needs to help you with code the code to set the parameter as there are already examples all over the web.

There's nothing difficult about this, it does just boil down to:
LOOP over set of filenames

set parameter(s)
call report

END LOOP
