Assignment problem

Hi all,

I would like to do something like:

For[ i=1, i<n, i++, ToExpression[ "q" <> ToString[i] ] = 0 ]

that is assigning q1=0, q2=0, etc... but it does not work.

I would not like to use the easy way out:

For[ i=1, i<n, i++, q[i] = 0 ]

of employing q[i] instead of qi.

Can you help me please?
