Set Variable or CustomProperty Names with and expression

I want to move data from one variable to several others by parsing one
and passing them to another (s)
In this scenario... the variable I want to pass them to needs to be
named according to one of the search items
where I want variable based on category names like:
categories are e.g.
repeat for each line x in gAllQuotes
repeat for each item y in tCategories
if item 6 of x contains y then
put x & cr & "|" after ("t" &y&"set")
set the uLifeSet of this stack to tlifeset
But apparently this is illegal... a variable name cannot be the result
of an expression.
I suppose I should think about using arrays, but this is a very small
amount of text data (less than 200K of line/tab delimited data) and I
never found the processing time for just parsing delimited text to be
that serious an issue...
Any clues? I'll sleep on this...perhaps get an answer in a dream tonite.
If not, I'll be looking for one here
