How have you ASSIGNed the output file?  In order to get numbered output files
you need to ASSIGN your output file using the default naming convention.

For example:


will create the same output file each time (called TEST.OUT) and only the last
parametric run will be saved.

However, using the default convention:

ASSIGN ***.OUT  10

will create output files that have the same name as your input file, but with a
.OUT extension and there will be one for each parametric table run.
