```Big Correction to my preceding post!
Tricked by my own cockpit error.
Apologies to all. Try this instead:

n = 4;(*# of desired variables*)
Quiet [ Remove["co*"], Remove::"rmnsm"];
set = Function[#1 = #2];
Table[Symbol["co" <> ToString[ i ] ], {i, 1, n}]
For[i = 1, i <= n, i++, set[%[ [ i ] ], i^3] ]
{co1, co2, co3}
