Exactly, what is 'text1' 'text2' etc? For instance, does 'text1' equal 'abcde1', 'text2' equal 'abcde2', ... 'text21' equals 'abcde21', etc OR does 'text1' equal 'a1si6d', 'text2' equal 'xYw290', etc? If the answer is the second description, then working this problem is going to be relatively to very hard. If, however, the answer is the first description, then working the problem is much, much easier because the value of the variable Varstr consists of a constant stem, the 'abcde' part plus a number which can be used to refer to the sequential position of the variable value. That is, Varstr='abcde34' indicates that the 34th element in the vector abcde has a value of 1. This is equivalent to saying that the variable abcde34 has a value of 1.

So, which is it? Or, is the another possibility?
