Ideally, when large numbers (thousands) of documents are retrieved, they are written to one output file so that reprinting, CD-ROM creation, or reloading of the data can be done. However, because documents can have different data types, physical characteristics, and may be stored on various archive media, multiple output files may be necessary. Disclosed, is a method to first determine whether multiple output files are necessary and to name the output files so that as each document is being retrieved, the document can be written to the appropriate output file.
