comment Writing CSV or alternative
Interesting. Using the test described in my previous comment your suggestion reduced the time from 8 seconds to 5 seconds when exporting to my C drive. Output to the network drive dropped from 6 minutes to about 3 minutes. Timing shows 11 seconds for the Network write. Maybe there's some sort of back and forth communication that happens with the destination device? I can copy the file in Windows from my local drive to the network drive almost instantly. the test is about 8MB, so at 100Mb/sec it should happen instantly. Maybe there's some sort of buffer size that can be adjusted?

comment Reassign values to symbols
J.M.: I tried your example and it worked as written. However if I assign a list, say mList={a,b,c,d}, and try to substitute mList it doesn't work. However, all I've done is copied what you had. Since I hadn't used Scan before and am not all that comfortable with Hold, I didn't really understand it. I'll spend some more time with those functions so I see what you're doing. Thanks for the help.

comment Reassign values to symbols
A primary aim of mine is to be able to make a bunch of reassignments using map, rather than writing all of the assignment statements. Another aim is to use meaningful names for the symbols and then being able to retrieve the name of the symbol, along with any values I assign to it. Typically the symbols will represent lists, I just used integers to make it easier to write out an example.
