It should work. What exactly did not work?

Using CSV Data Set Config with HTTP POST works fine for me.

I set up a CSV file with 2 columns: name and path-name

CSV DataSet
- recycle on EOF: false
- stop thread on EOF: true
- variable names: NAME, PATH

Then use ${PATH} in the File Path field and ${NAME} in the Parameter
Name field of the "Send Files with Request" section.

This works fine for me.

Much better to do this before starting the test - or if it does have
to be done at run-time, that's work for a setUp thread group.

But not necessary for your case, and seems to be unnecessarily
complicated, even without the BeanShell sampler.
