Spotlight Search For Multiple Files At The Same Time?

Hello! Is it possible to do a Spotlight search for multiple files at the same time? I know that if you type OR in-between file names, it will bring up both search results, but I'd like to get around typing "OR" in-between each search query.

Ideally, I'd like to copy/paste from a spreadsheet into the search field and have the results pop up for me? In a perfect world, I could copy/paste from my spreadsheet 20 different files and paste them into the search field and let OSX do the searching for me.

Thanks for any help

WELL... at least i found a workaround. I created a column and pasted OR into each cell, then copied the column with each file name AND the "OR" column. Then I pasted that into the Spotlight field and it worked. SO, I answered my own question. Hope someone else will find this trick handy.
