ToExpression[Table[
   "var" <> ToString[i] <> "=" <> ToString[i^2],
   {i, 10}]];

Names["var*"]

{var1,var10,var2,var3,var4,var5,var6,var7,var8,var9}

ToExpression[%]

{1,100,4,9,16,25,36,49,64,81}

Hi,

Is it possible to create a variable whose name is contained in another
variable or a string, something along the lines of

Table[ a="Var"<>ToString[i]; Variable[a] = i^2, {i, 1, 10}]

and end up with variables Var1, ..., Var10?

Thanks!

Aaorn
