The file names must be a valid file name, so if someone's name contains bad characters such as a slash (/), it may not work properly.

But if you want to do this via scripting, you'll have to do the same thing as the VI script by either reading the entire CSV via code and keeping track of the record if your script is an entire start-to-end script, or if your script is a per-dataset script (such as one played from the File > Scripts menu via Insert Menu Item in the Actions flyout menu), then you'll have to ensure your desired variable is represented inside a textbox and your script will have to read from it to get the variable's value.
