To clarify

In[1]:=Subscript[x, y] = {1, 2, 3}

Out1]={1, 2, 3}

To replace the third element I must use :

In[2]:=Subscript[x, y] = ReplacePart[Subscript[x, y], 10, 3]

Out[2]={1, 2,10}

So that now Subscript[x, y] gives:

In[3]:=Subscript[x, y]

Out[3]={1, 2, 10}

This is unwieldy and I was hoping for a little more condensed notation.
when using subscripts this appears appears to be the simplist notation
