Using a parameter and entering that as the file name in a mapkey is tricky, unfortunately. These things can be done, but it usually involves things like saving text files to disk and using a BAT file to read them, sending keyboard commands to the OS or running an Autohotkey script, or something like that. The easier way to do it is to just pause the mapkey when it's time and let the user enter the file name themselves.

 

Besides that part, the rest should be easy. Just record the mapkey and do the steps yourself.
