Normally you create a function by

f[x_] := x+5

But I have variables that are subscripted
(I can't write them here so will use xsub1)

If I write f[xsub1_] := xsub1 +5 it doesn't work
whether the underscore is on the x level or the
sub1 level.

Since the expression is huge with many subscripted variables I didn't want to go in by
hand and change xsub1 to say x1. I tried

With[[xsub1=x1}, expression]

but that gives me an error
