Not sure if this is even possible...

In a directory I have a template checklist PDF file. In same directory I have a spreadsheet that contains a list of product numbers.

Is it possible to take that template checklist PDF file and add a product number to its file name and then save

Then repeat the process till all the product numbers are attached to the template.

In effect creating new files in addition to the template file.  The directory looking like:
Template Checklist.PDF
Template Checklist_001.PDF
Template Checklist_002.PDF
Template Checklist_003.PDF
etc..
