Thank you for the quick and knowledgeable reply - your suggestion was tried but resulted in an odd error:
Warning: main(results.inc.php) [function.main]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in . . .
What's odd is that the string in question "1" appears just before the warning but does not appear as it should between the include request e.g. results-"1"-.inc.php. Regardless you've taken me one step closer to my goal and I do appreciate it! Do you see an obvious oversight on my part
PS, the_ID is the page numbers so this would work perfectly, if . . . it . . . worked . . . perfectly.
