Hi Peter,Thanks for the quick feedback. 
Sorry if I wasn't clear.
Yes, I asking on how to set the labels for a file so instead of 
<data format="tabular" name="filename" label="genes-results"/>
we can have a variable that comes from the interface set by the user so it can 
be like this?
Say the user set the name from a text box to be "S"
We can have S saved as $prefix, something like below.
<data format="tabular" name="$prefix.filename" label="$prefix.genes-results"/>

The files then will be labeled:
They still be called dataset_547.dat but labeled based on the user's input?
