Whenever you have a collection of variables whose names may be variable, an array is a natural fit.

LiveCode supports n-dimensional arrays, so you could use:

-- Store:
put "something" into tBigArray["1"]["text"]
put "somethingelse" into tBigArray["2"]["text"]

-- Retrieve:
put tBigArray["1"]["text"] into tSomeVar
put tBigArray["2"]["text"] into tAnotherVar
