I'm not clear on your requirments it seems like this may be what you want:
1. you know where the pg1 files come from
2. the text file has names of the .TOP files in it, and it does not matter about copying those files.

Code:
#!/bin/ksh
cd /path/to/directory
while read filename
do
     base=${filename%%.*}
     mkdir ./"$base"
     cp /path/to/pg1files/"$base".pg1  ./"$base"
done < textfile
