Um, I think you should use an array.
Curious, are you learning PHP after learning flash?

You can have a variable in a variable by using the following syntax:
The variable $day could then be defined as follows:
$day = "day_$i;
$$day = "something";
I hope this is what you need,

Thank you kindly all
I tried almost identical code to the one you suggested Ramon, but it didnt work. In the end i couldnt use the variable variable for what i wanted to do, but i do greatly appreciate your time.
Rod, if you mean Lingo, the Director language - yups i have learnt that also - has been a while though - not sure how it was relevant to the way i had tried to explain what i was trying to achieve though ...

Can't you use the eval() function to do this?
That should work to create the variable.
