Can you index objects in VBA?

I'm converting a standalone application into an Excel VBA application.  In the standalone, I have a series of pictures which are made visible and invisible (so as to animate).  They are Picture6(0) to Picture6(79).  However in Excel, I cannot do this because there is no index property for objects; they must be given entirely unique names.

So my question is, is indexing not allowed at all, or is it done differently that I am not aware of (as with some other small differences that I've noticed).  If it isn't allowed could you please give me some suggestions as to how I would go about doing this?

Thank you.

I don't think you can have a control array in VBA.  Perhaps you could call the pictures something
like PICTURE1, PICTURE2, PICTURE3, PICTURE4 - and then use something like the
eval function to refer to them.  I'm not sure of a good way to have common events amoung the objects , like a control array has, so thats why this is just a comment.
