PHP

i have a table, i call it GETFILENAME
in GETFILENAME i have 2 field one call "description" and another one call "filename"
in filename i have 3 record called "test1","test2","test3"
this "test1","test2","test3" is a file-name.


if writing in PHP i can write
$file1 = test1;
$file2 = test2;
$file3 = test3;

and each file is differentiate by different variable name

but

in the database i only have one field called filename and this filename is the variable name for that 3 record
as this

$GetFileNameReturn[$j] = $row['filename'];
foreach($this->GetFileNameReturn as $FileName)
    {      
    $filename = test1;
    $filename = test2;
    $filename = test3;
    }

above code shows 3 different file are assigned to the same variable filename
suppose i only need 3 times to create 3 different file but now i need 9 time to create 3 different file
How to do this
pls help

Not knowing anything about what you are trying to do let me give just a very small advice.
Either loop through the files you get from the database directly
and perform whatever you need to do directly
or
Use an array which will contain your filenames (see snippet).
If you need to know additional information about your files to decide what
to do with them you may want to store that in the DB as well e.g.: FileType (txt,jpg,..)
Hope this helps
$index = 0;
$filename = array(); //Not really neccessary
foreach($this->GetFileNameReturn as $FileName)
{      
    $filename[$index++] = $FileName;
}
//Now all files are stored in the $filename array and you can 
//access them by their indices.
