Naming output file

 Naming output file

I was wondering if it is possible to take information from a variable
within an awk script and use that information to name the output file.
For example using the following script...

awk 'BEGIN {FS = "\t"}
     { if ($1 == "N"){
         batchnum = $2
  sequence = $3
  print $0}}
     END {print "L", batchnum, sequence}' test1 > "b
