When you select Use multiple files, you have to specify a file name, otherwise you get an error message.

You can add a file name just above "Use multiple files"
File: Add filename like MultipleFiles.pcap

Every output file gets a number and a timestamp.
The output files will look like:
First file:
MultipleFiles_00001_20101025221518.pcap
Second file:
MultipleFiles_00002_20101025221618.pcap
Third file:
MultipleFiles_00003_20101025221718.pcap
etc..

You can find more information in the Wireshark User's guide:
