Array Question

Can you use a variable name as the index of an array?  It doesn't appear 
so or I'm doing something wrong.  Here's what I'm trying:

put 1 into tasks["Search"]
put 2 into tasks["Reports"]

then in a menuPick handler:

on menuPick pChoice
    goto cd tasks[pChoice]
end menuPick

I need to do this because I have more cards than I have menu choices and 
they are intermixed with the "real" ones and I don't want the user to go 
directly to these "hidden" cards.

Am I going to have to resort to a "do" command?  I tried that quickly 
but it just gave me an error.
