Question: How to retrieve identically named variables from different .mla archives?

In answer to a previous question ( acer introduced me to the .mla archives as a possible store location for variables.

I have been working with this and now end up having 4 .mla files (called results1.mla...results4.mla) that each hold output from some lengthy batch running of maple. Each of these has two tables with values called Beams and Beams2 (same name in each of these archives). While named the same the content is different.

My question is: How do I get at each of these? As acer explained, the content (i.e. the tables Beams and Beams2) is mapped into the namespace of the Maple session once libname includes the directory where the .mla files sit. They are actually in the same directory as the associated Maple programs so they mask each other.

I tried to juggle libname prepending the .mla file I want to the rest; but that does not seem to work (I always get the same data). I do need the data all in one worksheet for collating and postprocessing and display.
